Obituary

THE PUTNEY COLUMN
Lyman B. Wood.

Lyman B. Wood, 77, died in his home on the West hill road Friday morning, after being in feeble health several years.

Mr. Wood was a son of D. Parkman and Eunice (Blood) Wood and was born Aug. 29, 1839, on West hill on the farm now owned by Horace L. Scott. When the call came for volunteers during the Civil war Mr. Wood enlisted in Company B. 16th Vermont Volunteers. On Jan. 14, 1864 he married Louise M. Allen, daughter of Ethan and Amarilla (Whitney) Allen. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Timothy Dwight, pastor of the Congregational church, whose home was in the home now owned by Dr. L. H. Bugbee, where the marriage took place. Mr. And Mrs. Wood began their home life in the little home at the four corners, West hill, which has since been burned, moving three years later to the well known Marcus Perry place and living there until May, 1895, when they moved to their present home.

Mr. and Mrs. Wood had four children, Lilla, wife of Frank Covey of Bernardston, Mass.; Etta, Mrs. Fred Inert Andrews of Greenfield, Mass.; Henry Wood of Putney and Cora, Mrs. Ahrems of Springfield, Mass.

Mr. Wood was a lifelong resident of this town and a respected citizen.

The funeral was held at the house Monday afternoon at 1 o’clock, Rev. R. B. Davis officiating, and the burial took place in the old family burying ground on West hill. The bearers were Mr. Andrews, Mr. Ahrens, Will Wood and Benjamin Wood. The children and their husbands and wives were all present.
