Albert O. Reed, 83, died about 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Walter E. Sturges of Canal street, Brattleboro, Vt. For several years he had suffered from cardiac asthma and had been failing during the past winter and developed bronchial pneumonia from which he died in less than two days.
Mr. Reed was born October 16, 1839 at Stamford, Vt., a son of Marcina and Sarah (Underwood) Reed. He served through the Civil war in the 27th Massachusetts regiment. In October 1870 he married Miss Jeannette Cotton of Bennington, Vt., and they made their home in this town for many years. Four children were born to them, Geo. A who died at the age of 22, Fred S. who died at the age of 35, Mrs. Walter Sturges at whose home he died and Mrs. L. H. Crosier of this place. Mr. Reed retired about 25 years ago from the lumber business. He was a member of the G.A.R. of Adams, Mass. Besides his wife, Mr. Reed leaves two daughters above mentioned, a grandson, Stanley Crosier, a student of Wilbraham Academy, and a brother, E.P. Reed, of Jacksonville. Mr. and Mrs. Reed had made their home for the past ten years with their daughters.
The body was brought to Readsboro Tuesday and the funeral was held in the Baptist church, Rev. F. S. Weston officiating. Burial was in Stamford.
