The body of Moses Shawney was brought here from Littleton, N.H., last week Monday and placed in the tomb. Mr. Shawney was an old resident of Sharon, having lived in town sixty years. About two years ago he went to Littleton to live with his daughter, Mrs. Nellie Sherman. Henry Shawney accompanied the body here and spent a day in town calling on old friends.
