Obituary

James Riddall of this village died Monday morning of tetanus, resulting from a wound on the hand which he received in an ensilage cutter two weeks ago. Mr. Riddall had been a resident of this town for several years. He had been in feeble health for some time, although able to perform considerable labor. He was a soldier in the Army of the Potomac in the 12th Vt. Regt., and was pensioned for disabilities resulting from sickness and injuries while in service and was a member of Bixby post, G.A.R. He left a young wife, whom he married a year ago. His funeral was attended Wednesday.
