Obituary

Joseph O. LaPier

Joseph O. LaPier died on Saturday morning at eight o'clock at his home at 98 South Champlain street. Mr. LaPier was born in Peru, N.Y., in 1842. He enlisted in the Civil war as a musician in Company F, 6th Vermont infantry in 1861 and was later transferred to Company A, where he served until the end of the war. He was a member of Stannard Post. Mr. LaPier was employed in this city as a landscape gardener until two years ago when failing health compelled him to give up his work. In 1865, he married Miss Mary J. Sharpe of Lacolle, P.Q., who survives him, with three sons, Sanford J., and George W. of Burlington, and Harry W., of Lawrence, Mass. He is also survived by three daughters, Mrs. Arthur Bagnall of Providence, Mrs. Henry LaParie of Rutland and Miss Cora LaPier of Burlington. The funeral will be held Tuesday morning at nine o'clock at St. Joseph's Church, with burial in Mt. Calvary cemetery.
