Obituary

CHELSEA.

Henry Sharp Died Today of Valvular Disease of the Heart.

Henry Sharp, who moved to the village about two months ago from the A. W. Boyd farm in South Washington, which he sold to S.C. Wilson, died at his home on Main street Friday morning after several months' illness with valvular heart trouble. A prayer service was held from the home Sunday morning, after which the remains were taken to South Strafford for the funeral ceremony and interment, which was in the family lot beside his first wife. The deceased was about 75 years of age, was a veteran of the Civil war and is survived by his widow and one daughter, a Mrs. Jennings, who resides in Rochester.
