DEATH OF HENRY WILLARD.
Henry Willard, who has been sick about one week with pneumonia, died at his home early Tuesday morning, aged 64 years. From the first his symptoms were serious and did not yield to the treatment and kindly care which he received.
A sad feature of the case is that his wife too as ill with the same disease, though in a milder form, but still unable to be about and so was denied the privilege of ministering to him in his suffering. Mr. Willard was a veteran of the Civil war, serving in the 6th Mass. Regt., under Capt. Aaron Handley.
Beside the wife he leaves one son, Frank Willard of Lebanon, N.H., and two daughters, Mrs. Ada Vining of Phillips, Me., and Miss Alice, who resides at home. Funeral services will be held from the Universalist church here Friday afternoon, Nov. 29, at 2 o’clock. The G.A.R. post 138 will attend in a body, also members of the W.R.O.
