Obituary

WEST BRIDGEWATER

The community was greatly shocked, last Wednesday night, on learning of the sudden death of Alonzo Madden, after an illness of only a few days. He passed away quietly and peacefully without the sign of a struggle or the movement of a muscle. His funeral was well attended and was held at the hall on Friday following his death, A.F. Hubbard of Tyson, officiating. Mr. Madden was a stirring man, a kind and very affectionate husband. He leaves a wife and one son, also a large circle of friends and relatives to mourn their irreparable loss. His age was fifty-six years.
