Obituary

PITTSFIELD

Our town was made sad on the 5th of November by the death of Mr. Edward Atwood, after a brief but severe illness of less than a week. Mr. Atwood was one of the prominent business men of the place. He was intrusted with the affairs of the town, serving as selectman for several years, besides holding other town offices. He represented the town in the Legislature in 1880. He was in every way a kind husband, as obliging neighbor and a good citizen. In business relations he was a man of strict integrity, and his loss will be greatly felt by C. W. Brigham & Co., of which firm he was an active member. He was in the prime of life, having just passed his thirty-ninth birthday. He leaves a wife in deepest grief. She has the sympathy of the entire community.
