Funeral of Dr. D. W. Smead Held at Congregational Church

The funeral of Dr. D. W. Smead, who died Friday, was held from the Congregational Church at 2:30 o'clock Sunday afternoon, the Rev. William Millar officiating. Burial was in the village cemetery. There was a large attendance of friends and acquaintances. The bearers were G. W. Bailey, H.D. Drury, I.E. Huntley and J.H. Viele. A quartet, composed of Mrs. J.H. Viele, Mrs. F. H. Stanley, E. W. Post and F.H. Stanley sang "Abide With Me" and "Jesus, Lover of My Soul." The casket was draped with the American flag. Dr. Smead was born August 5, 1838, in St. Lawrence county, N.Y., and at the age of two years removed with his parents to Defiance, Ohio. At the outbreak of the Civil War he enlisted in the 100th Ohio Volunteer regiment and served through the duration of the war. He was made first lieutenant of the First U.S Heavy Artillery and a t the close of the war was acting captain. He was present at the siege of Knoxville. After the war he took up the profession of dentist under Dr. Sheldon at Malone, N.Y., and followed the study with a course at Harvard Dental College. He came to Essex Junction in 1878 and practiced dentistry until about four years ago, in which profession he was both skillful and successful. Dr. Smead was a member of the Loyal Legion of Rolla Sherman post, G.A.R., No. 86, and Ethan Allen Lodge, No. 72, F. and A.M. Dr. Smead was a man of few words, a true friend, kind neighbor, a polished gentleman, sincere and unassuming and will long be remembered by all who had the privilege of his acquaintance. An only daughter, Mrs. Fred Sibley of Medford, Mass., survives him.
