Obituary

WOODBURY

Jonas G. Sulham,for years a resident of Hyde Park, died at his home in West Woodbury Monday, Sept. 8, 1902. The deceased was 80 years and five months old. He was the youngest of 11 children, all of whom lived to the age of 80 years or more. Mr. Sulham was a soldier in the war of the rebellion and served the entire period of the war, coming home July 14, 1865. He received many wounds in battles, had one shoulder very nearly disabled by a minnie ball and received a cut across the scalp from a sword, besides numerous other slight injuries. He was twice married; the first time to Nancy B. McKinistry, who bore him five children of whom three survive him. His second wife was Miss Seloma Ingles and she bore him eight children, three boys and five girls. Jonas Sulham has been in poor health for the past eleven years and for the past year his death has been expected at any time. He leaves besides his children numerous relatives and friends to mourn the loss of him. The funeral took place Wednesday and the interment was in the Hardwick cemetery.
