Obituary

Resolutions on the Death of the Late Orrin L. Beckwith of Rochester.

Whereas, it has pleased Almighty God in His wise providence to remove from our midst our late worthy and esteemed comrade, Orrin L. Beckwith, and
Whereas, the intimate relations long held by the deceased with the members of this post render it proper that we should place upon record our appreciation of his loyalty as a soldier, and his merits as a citizen, therefore,
Resolved, that we tender to his afflicted relatives our sincere sympathy at the loss of one who was a kind husband and father; a loyal member of Col. H. A. Eaton post, G. A. R., No. 38, and an upright citizen of the commonwealth.
Resolved, by this post that the charter be draped in black for a period of thirty days and that a copy of the foregoing resolutions be transmitted to the family of the deceased.
