Obituary

FAIRHAVEN

Harvey Shepard suffered a paralytic shock on Wednesday afternoon at five o'clock, and died Thursday morning. Mr. Shepard was fond of music and was an excellent musician; he had just played a piece on his organ for the entertainment of a friend who was calling, and was retiring from the instrument when he was prostrated. He was associated in the grocery business with his son, Dea. F. H. Shepard. His age was sixty-three. Funeral from his late residence at one o'clock on Friday. The burial will be in Castleton, where Mr. S lived many years.
