Obituary

Death of Joseph S. Bean

Joseph S. Bean, a former resident of this community, died in a hospital at Concord, N. H., on the 13th of March at the age of ninety-seven years. His native home was Bethlehem, N. H., but his last residence was at Newport in that state.

Mr. Bean served in the Civil war. He was the father of ten children and is survived by one son, Lee Bean of Sharon, who will be 75 years old April 15th, and by three daughters, Mrs. Frank Shirlock and Mrs. Mary Wood of Royalton, Vt., and Mrs. William A. Clifford of Sharon, all of these past 60 years of age. He served faithfully his country and his generation leaves behind the memory and influence of a good friend, citizen and parent.

Funeral services were held for him at the home of William A. Clifford on the afternoon of March 15th, conducted by Rev. Pliny H. Fisk and burial was made in Pine Hill cemetery. The remains were accompanied here by Winthrop Sargent of Newport, N. H., who has served as guardian for Mr. Bean.
