Obituary

George O. Simonds, for many years past a well-known and popular traveling salesman, died at the home of his sister, Mrs. E. H. Winchester, in Argyle, N.Y., Sunday morning. Mr. Simonds was the son of Ossian and Fanny Conant Simonds of Pawlet, Vt., in which town he was born 56 years ago. When 19 years of age he enlisted in Company A, Fourteenth Vermont regiment, and served in the late war. Mr. Simonds in days agone was one of the most prominent and popular residents of Granville and vicinity. He is survived by a young son, Lawrence Simonds, who resides in New York, two brothers, Warren Simonds of Troy, and C. S. Simonds of Granville, and a sister, Mrs. Winchester of Argyle. The funeral will be held Tuesday with brief services at the home in Argyle at 9 o’clock. The funeral cortege will reach Granville about 2 o’clock in the afternoon, where the remains will be taken in charge of Granville Lodge, F. And A.M., of which he was a member. They will be joined by the Poultney and Pawlet Masonic lodges and a procession formed to go to the cemetery in North Pawlet where the interment will be made.
