Obituary

Death of M. B. Rumrill

The death of Martin B. Rumrill, for many years a resident of Randolph, occurred Oct. 28 at Mt. Elam Road, Fitchburg, Mass., after a brief illness of hypostatic pneumonia.

Martin B, Rumrill, son of Charles W. And Phebe (Barnes) Rumrill, was born in Peru, N.Y., Nov. 28, 1844. He moved to Vermont in early youth and at the outbreak of the War of the Rebellion enlisted at the age of seventeen in Company E, 4th Vermont volunteered, to serve throughout the struggle.

After the war he took up farming as a means of livelihood and continued it with success until broken health compelled him to retire from active labor some three years ago. He then removed from Vermont to Fitchburg, to make his home with his daughter, Mrs. F. C. Davis.

He was a member of Phoenix lodge, F. And A. M., Whitney chapter, E. A. M. Haswell council, R. and S. M., U. S. Grant post, G. A. R., and the I. O. O. F., all of this village.

He is survived by five children, Mrs. G. S. Hutchinson of San Diego, Cal.,; Mrs. F C. Davis of Fitchburg; F. H. Rumrill of Northfield; P. F. Rumrill of Concord, N. H., and M. L. Rumrill of Longmeadow, Mass.

The funeral services will be held at his late home, Mt. Elam Road, Fitchburg, this afternoon at 4:30 p. m., and the remains will be brought to Randolph tomorrow afternoon for interment in the family lot at Southview cemetery.
