Funeral of Alonzo W. Wheeler
The funeral of Alonzo W. Wheeler was held Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the chapel. Rev. E. E. Jones officiated, assisted by Rev. George A. Gray.
There were a large number of persons who attended the service, including delegations from the Sons of Veterans organizations of Northfield and Brattleboro. There were persons from Winchester, N. H., Hinsdale, N. H., Guilford, Brattleboro, Northfield, Bernardston and Boston.
Many floral tributes attested to the esteem of his many friends and neighbors.
The bearers were Sons of Veterans from Northfield – Harry Haskell, Laurence Lazelle, Mr. Slate and F. A. Irish. The burial will take place in Tyler cemetery in the spring.
Mr. Wheeler will be greatly missed by the son, Alonzo, and family, his neighbors and the Veteran organizations at Northfield where he was a faithful attendant.
Mr. Wheeler engaged in the cultivation of berries and small fruits for many years. He was a great lover of flowers and many choice specimens thrived under his tender care. He was ever a kind neighbor and friend and interested in worthy cause. He was a loyal, honest and patriotic American and proud that he had outlived the other members of the G.A. R. In this town.
