Warren Freeman Richardson was born in Orange March 15, 1945. He came with his parents to Barre when he was only a year old and had always made his home here. He received his education in the public schools of Barre, attending the old Barre academy under Jacob Spaulding. Afterwards he was a student at Newbury seminary, one of the most famous institutions of its time in Vermont. Not long after the outbreak of the Civil War he enlisted as a private, serving nine months in the Fifteenth Vermont regiment, Co. D. His enlistment took place in 1862 and it was while in the service that he received injuries from which he never recovered. After returning home, Mr. Richardson learned the carpenters' trade, working with Alfred Lane several years. Oct. 31, 1865, he was married to Alice F. Childs of Barre. For a time after his marriage, Mr. Richardson occupied a farm not far from the city. Four children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Richardson as follows: Bertha, Mabel , Edith and Allie. In 1887 the family moved back to their farm in the city.

Funeral services will be held at the home Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. J. B. Reardon, pastor of the Universalist church, officiating. The interment will be made in Elmwood cemetery. The family requests that flowers be omitted.
