James Munroe died very suddenly at his home on Main street on Friday, Dec. 29. Funeral services were held from his late home on Sunday afternoon at 2.30 with Rev. Alfred W. Stone officiating. Appropriate vocal selections were rendered by John R. MacKenzie. Burial was in Sleepy Hollow cemetery, Concord.
Mr. Munroe was 81 years of age and a veteran of the Civil war. He was a member of Old Concord post, G.A.R.
He was particularly active for one of his age and had enjoyed good health up to the time of his death, which came while working as usual about his home. He was shoveling snow when a neighbor saw him suddenly lurch forward from the plazza. Help was summoned but before they reached him he was dead.
Mr. Munroe is survived by two
daughters, Miss Ana Munroe and Mrs. George Haskell of Bridgeport, Conn.; also one son, Everett Munroe of Templeton.
