Obituary

Dwight L. Herrick

Dwight L. Herrick, 65, died at 8:30 Tuesday forenoon at Northfield, Mass., at the home of C. L. Johnson, where he had been cared for during the last year. Mr. Herrick sustained a paralytic shock about four years ago and two years later he suffered a second one which rendered him speechless and unable to walk.

Mr. Herrick was born July 1, 1845, in Chesterfield, N. H. He was one of six children of Alanson and Lovilla (Burnham) Herrick. He spent his early life at his home and was a graduate of the Chesterfield academy. He was a civil war veteran, enlisting in Company C, 19th New Hampshire regiment, in which he served as corporal. At the close of the war he returned to Chesterfield and engaged in farming for a time. The he went to Keene where he was clerk in a provision store. He moved to Brattleboro about 40 years ago and was employed as a tuner for the Estey Organ Company for 35 years, resigning after he sustained his last shock.

Mr. Herrick was a member of the Baptist church of West Brattleboro, past commander of Sedgwick post, G. A. R., and past worshipful master of Columbian lodge, F. & A, M. He moved to West Brattleboro about two years ago and left there for Northfield last year to be cared for.

Mr. Herrick was twice married. His first wife was Josephine Warren of Keene. Three children by this marriage survive him, Mrs. Luella Bosworth of Slocum of Springfield, Mass., and Miss Florence Herrick of Keene, N. H. Nov. 26, 1890, he married Mrs. Flora (Lane) Kendall, formerly of East Putney. She survives him with two step-children, Mabel, wife of C. L. Johnson of Northfield, Mass., and Harry Kendall of San Francisco. He also leaves one brother, Emory Herrick of Chesterfield, and one sister, Mrs. G. H. Carver of Parkersburg, W. Va., and a nephew, Louis Herrick of West Chesterfield. A prayer service was held in Northfield this morning at 9 o'clock and the body brought to Brattleboro where the funeral will be held in the chapel of the First Baptist church at 1 o'clock this afternoon and burial will be in Morningside cemetery. Rev. J. R. Gow will officiate.
