Leonard W. Simonds

Leonard W. Simonds died suddenly about 4 oíclock last Saturday afternoon while sitting in his carriage with his wife before his brotherís grocery store. He had been ill and an intense sufferer from a kidney and heart trouble which followed an attack of the grip a year ago last April. Mr. Simonds was a native of Brattleboro and was the youngest of nine children of the late Perrin Simonds, the old-time Brattleboro boot and shoe dealer. The family homestead was the High street house now owned and occupied by R. W. DeWolf. In course of time, Leonard W., and his brother, Fred W., succeeded to their fatherís business in the store in the old Fisk building. They sold out and left town in 1876 and L. W. Simonds located in Berlin, Ont. A few weeks ago he came to Brattleboro with his family and rented the Franks house on High street. Mr. Simonds age was 48 years. Of the brothers and sisters there now remain Mrs. Lewis Higgins, Mrs. R. C. Cressy, Henry W., and Fred W. Simonds. The funeral was held Tuesday morning, Rev. F. W. Sprague and Rev. C. O. Day officiating. The burial was in the family lot in Prospect Hill cemetery. Mrs. Simonds with her five children went immediately to Erie, Penn., accompanying her brother, who came on to attend the funeral.
