RECENT DEATH OF VERMONTERS
Marcus A. Moody, aged 71 years, senior merchant of the village, substantial citizen and Civil war veteran, died Monday night at his home in Bethel, following an illness of many weeks, which began with an attack f bronchitis early inNovember. His constitution, whichm since the war, had never been strong, proved too weak to rally permanently, though only ten days before his death he was well enough to be out of doors for a short walk. Sciatic rheumatism soon followed and hastened the end. Mark Moody, as he was universally called in Bethel, was a successful business man, one of the few who have made a competentcy. Since 1869 he had done an ibncreasing business in groceries, men's furnishings, feed and provisions. He gave the closest possible supervision to his business. He was a member of Company A, 16th Vermont rgiment and was in the thick of the fight at Gettysburg. He represented Bethel in the general assembly on 1878, and though not an office-seeker, was always deeply interested in politics, being inclined to take of late an independent attitude. He was a Clement leader in 1and helped to carry thje town for the Clement ticket. He was a Grand Army man and a Mason but had notaste for society and was seldom seen away from his house or store. He is survived by his wife, who was Abbie Archer, daughter of the late Samuel Archer, and by a brother, John Moody of Wisconsin.
