Obituary

Mr. James Houghton, formerly of this town, died at his residence in Westfield, Mass., last Friday. His remains were brought here for interment and buried from the Universalist church on Monday afternoon. The services were attended by the Odd Fellows and the members of the Grand Army of the Republic, of both of which orders Mr. Houghton was a member. Mr. Harris made use simply of the usual burial service of his church, the funeral proper having been held at Westfield on Sunday. Mr. Houghton was one of the original members of Co. F, 4th Vt. Vols., and several members of his old company, who now reside in Brattleboro, were present at the service on Monday. The exercises at the grave were conducted by the Odd Fellows.
