Obituary - Nelson Snow
Nelson Snow was born in Pomfret, Vt., Sept. 29, 1839, and died in Sharon, Vt., Sept. 9, 1925, twenty days before his eighty-sixth birthday. His parents removed to Roxbury, Vt., while he was a child and remained there for a period of ten years. At about that time his father died and his mother returned with the family to Pomfret where Nelson remained till he was grown. He served for nine months in the Civil war.
In March, 1871, he was married to Eudora Spaulding, who died in 1917. To them were born two children, Clarence, now living in Sharon, and Isabelle, who died in May, 1898. The first years of his married life were spent in Strafford. Later he resided for ten years in Quechee, where he was employed by the A. G. Dewey Manufacturing company. In October, 1894, he removed to the farm in Sharon now occupied by his son, Clarence, with whom he spent the closing days of his life.
Besides this son, the deceased leaves a sister, Mrs. Ellen Copeland of Hartford; a granddaughter, Mrs. Gladys Johnson of Lawrence, Mass., and three[sic] other grandchildren, Henry Clarence Snow; and Leslie Earl Wood; also two other great-grandchildren, Isabelle Johnson and Leslie Earl Wood, Jr.
Mr. Snow was well known in the community as an upright and industrious citizen, a good neighbor and an affectionate husband and father in his home.
The funeral was held from the Congregational church of Sharon, Sept. 11 at 2 p.m., the pastor, Rev. Pliny H. Fisk, officiating. Music was rendered by Mr. and Mrs. Wendall Eaton and Mrs. M. W. Ricker of South Royalton. The bearers were C. W. Sleeper, William H. Wilson, H. L. Wood and William A. Clifford.
