Acton Memorial Library
So. Acton lost one of its most respected citizens on Friday last in the death of J. Henry Wood aged 62 years 7 mos. 28 days. Mr. Wood has been a model of patience during his long suffering, his sickness extending back for nearly seven years. He was born in this town and has been resident here the greater part of his life, although he was engaged in business a number of years in the western part of the state, principally at Lee, in which place he was formerly a member of the G.A.R. Mr. Wood leaves a widow, a brother E.F. Wood, and a mother Mrs. Pheby Wood 91 yrs. of age. The funeral was held at his late residence on Monday, Rev. W.F. Dusseault officiating.
