Obituary

EAST BARNARD

Francis Y. Snow, long-time resident of this town, died Tuesday morning in the 91st year of his age, at his home on the Allen Hill road. Mr. Snow had been in his usual health until last Thursday when he seemed to have a slight attack of the heart and went to bed, bur his death resulted from the infirmities common to his age. Mrs. Snow, who was Miss Luvella Perry and born on the farm which has now for many years been the Snow homestead, died some years ago. Mr. Snow is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Luvie Nooman, who resides on the homestead, and Mrs. Lula Billings, of South Royalton. Mr. Snow was a veteran of the Civil War, having enlisted at Sharon, Oct. 1, 1861, in Company F, 8th Regt, Vt. Volunteers. He was mustered into service Feb. 18, 1862, and participated in several battles. On May 27, 1863, he was wounded during the assault on Port Hudson in Louisiana, and the following March 11, 1864, was transferred to the Veterans' Relief Corps. He was honorably discharged after more than three years' service on April 22, 1865. The funeral will be held in the church at East Barnard on Thursday afternoon at two o'clock and interment will be in Pine Tree Cemetery at Sharon.
