Obituary

Frederick P. Barrett
Died in St. Johnsbury, September 28, of bronchitis

Frederick Plummer Barrett of Peacham, aged 71 years. Mr. Barrett was born in Chelsea, July 2, 1839. Fifty years ago last Christmas he was married to Miss Laura Bigelow of Woodbury, who died two years ago. To them were born three children, the oldest of whom died in infancy. His daughter, Mrs. Gibson of Barnet and a son, Bert Barrett of Peacham, survive him.

Mr. Barrett enlisted in the 1st Vt. Cavalry in 1863, and served until the close of the war. It is very remarkable that six brothers of Mr. Barrett’s were in the Civil war. There is only one brother now living, Charles Barrett of Woodbury.

The funeral was held at the M. E. church in Peacham, on Friday, Rev. E. B. Bartlett officiating. The interment was in the family lot in the Peacham cemetery.
