Samuel Stoddard passed away December 24. He was a great sufferer for nearly two years, twice stricken with paralysis and was unable to speak for a long time. Mr. Stoddard was a soldier in the Civil war and was one of the first from this section to volunteer to serve under the stars and stripes. He was a native of Waterford. He married Janette Kinney, also of Waterford. Their home has been in Barnet for many years. Two children were born to them, Lutie, Mrs. Spafford of Orleans, and Wilaret. There is one granddaughter, Doris Spafford, who has a government position in Washington, D. C. Mr. Stoddard was a kind neighbor, indulgent with his family, always ready to help the needy, and will be greatly missed. Much sympathy is extended to the sorrowing family.
