Death of Edward Taylor
Edward Taylor, a well known citizen and Civil War veteran, passed away at his home in Danville, Monday morning, Dec. 11. He was the son of Josiah Pascal and Betsey (Goodenough) Taylor and was born in Danville, August 20, 1830. He was one of a family of 10 children, two of whom died in childhood, and only three of them survive him; B. F. Taylor of South Walden, Mrs. Fannie Dix of Plainfield and Mrs. Josephine Rae of Snohomish, Washington. March 2, 1850 Mr. Taylor was united in marriage to Sarah Jane Forrest of Danville and to them two children were born, both of whom are living, Mrs. William Folsom of Walden and George E. Taylor of Danville. He leaves besides his wife and children, nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Three of his grandchildren, Effie, Raymond and Hazel, have made their home with him since childhood. Sept. 13, 1861, Mr. Taylor responded to his country's call for volunteers and enlisted in Co. H, 4th Vt., and served three years, when he returned home and took up his work farming, which he followed for several years when he learned the trade of carpenter and joiner and moved from his farm to Danville Green , where he has since resided. He had been in good health for a man of his years, up to about two months ago, since when he has been a great sufferer, but had been in bed only about two weeks before he died. The funeral was held from his late home Thursday at one o'clock, the Rev. A. B. Enright officiating. Among those from out of town present were Mr. and Mrs. William Folsom of Walden and F. L. Taylor and Raymond E. Taylor of South Walden and H. S. Willey and P. N. Somers of St. Johnsbury. The deceased was a kind husband, father and grandfather, and an honest upright citizen and will be greatly missed by his family and friends. The interment was at the Danville cemetery.
