The body of Lucien Aldrich, a former resident and well known citizen of Vershire, was brought here for burial Thursday, Jan. 20, accompanied by his wife and daughter. Funeral services, conducted by Rev. A. B. Blanchard, were held at the South Vershire church, and burial was in the village cemetery by the side of his first wife, who died while they were living here. Mr. Aldrich was a veteran of the Civil war and was, we think, a native of Vershire. He leaves besides his wife and daughter, a brother and sister and many friends who are saddened by his death.
