Obituary

A Sudden Death
Clipping from the Union, Manchester, N. H.

Newport, Oct. 17. - The body of Lucien Barnes, who dropped dead at the home of Frank Wheeler, was taken to Sunapee Saturday evening. Mr. Barnes was a veteran from the Soldiers' Home at Togus, Me., and on his way to visit his son, who resides at Sunapee. He met an old friend in Mr. Wheeler, both having lived at the Soldiers' Home together. With him Mr. Barnes remained over night to rest and talk over old times, and retired in usual health.

"In the morning, while the family was preparing the morning meal, they heard a noise like something falling. They went up to the chamber where the old gentleman was and found he had expired. He was partly dressed and in stooping for his shoes it was thought the exertion was too much and he died suddenly of apoplexy. His age was 66 years, one month and 29 days. The funeral was Tuesday at the home of his son, Jesse. Dixie M. Newton was undertaker."
