Obituary

George Beecher, who for 40 years had been engaged in the culture of bees, died Monday at his home in Essex Junction. He developed from one swarm an apiary of 125 swarms. He was born in Bavaria, Germany, but came to the United States with his parents at the age of 10 years. He served in the Civil war and had served in most of the town offices of Essex.
