Obituary

Joseph Wood, Jr., a man well known about town, was found dead in one of the halls of the Union house late Saturday night. No one seems to know how he came there, for he had not been seen around the house during the evening. He was discovered by one of the boarders, who was retiring to his room, about twelve o'clock. Wood was a blacksmith by trade and was a good workman. He was a member of Company B, Tenth Regiment, Vermont Volunteers, and his comrades account him a good soldier. He was born in town and had always lived here. He was fifty-two years of age. His father was the first French-Canadian resident of the town, coming here about 1829, and is now living, at the advanced age of ninety. His funeral was observed on Monday and interment was made in the Catholic cemetery.
