Obituary

DEATH OF ABRAM ROWELL

A large concourse of friends and neighbors assembled at the late home of Abram Rowell, of Co. C., 16th regiment Vermont volunteers, whose funeral services were held on Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. H. A. Ballou, of Chester, and Rev. Mr. Comrade, of Western officiating. Sheridan Post, G.A.R., of which he was a member, attended and had burial service at Peaseville cemetery where he was buried. Comrades Samuel Whiting, J. Johnson, O. S. Osborn, Clark Pease, of Weston, W. D. Ball of Johnson and Ludlo, all of Vo. C. 16th Reg. were bearers.

Last Thursday morning between half past four and five o'clock Abram passed quietly and suddenly away. He had been suffering with pneumonia for the past two weeks, but his physician and family all announced him better, so his sudden death came very unexpected, and with almost paralyzing force.

Mr. Rowell will be missed, not only by his family, but by his many friends and neighbors, as he was always genial, kind, and social with all, ready and willing to speak a kind word, and extend a helping hand to the needy and suffering.

A dear and an affectionate father, loving brother, a kind neighbor and friend are gone. His wife's aged parents, one son, one daughter, three grandchildren, three brothers are left to mourn his loss. He was about 64 years of age.

Our heartfelt sympathies are extended to the family in their great sorrow.
