Hyman G. Willard

St. Albans Daily Messenger

April 24, 1906

H. G. Willard

Alderman H. G. Willard died at his home in Burlington late Monday afternoon after an illness of only a few hours of pneumonia.

Hyman G. Willard was a native of Burlington and was in the 67th year of his age. He was a son of Guy N. and Beulah Ann (Bishop) Willard and was born October 4, 1839, in the homestead not far from the house where his death occurred. He received his education in the common schools in his native town and in the old Burlington Academy.

Early in life he engaged in land surveying and was associated for many years with the late D.C. Linsley in civil engineering on the Central Vermont, Burlington & Lamoille, and Canada Atlantic railroads. Subsequently he was engaged in the same line of work with the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern railroads, with headquarters in Chicago.

After the death of his father, about twelve years ago, Mr. Willard, who had previously been engaged with him in the operation of Willard's ledge on Shelburne road, assumed management of the business and continued it with marked success.

In politics, Mr. Willard was a Democrat. Two years ago he received his first election to the office of alderman from ward five. At the annual municipal election last month he was returned to office for another term.

Forty-five years ago he married Miss Fannie Parkhurst whose death occurred about fifteen years ago. He leaves as near relatives, one brother, Horace Willard, of Burlington, and one sister, Mrs. Eliza A. Zottman, who presided over his household.
