The amusing (NOW) news article appeared as a Plymouth Local on April 13, 1889, page 2.
Mr. and Mrs. Wesley B. Barnard had a very narrow escape from serious injury Monday while riding down Hoyt Hill, so called. They were upon the sled containing about 400 feet of sawed lumber when the sled tongue broke and the horses started on a run down the hill. Mrs. Barnard jumped from the runaway team and Mr. Barnard was thrown and it was not until the horses reached the foot of the hill that they were stopped. The boards were scattered for a mile along the road, the sled demolished and the horses received several cuts. Luckily Mr. and Mrs. Barnard escaped injury. >The Plymouth Record, January 13, 1900, p4.
Wesley G. Barnard has sold his milk route to Herman and Elmer Clay which took effect last Tuesday. >The Ashland Item, March 5, 1892, p4.
Wesley G. Barnard
Wesley Gutterson Barnard died at his home in South Plymouth Saturday morning, February 3, following an illness of several months. He was born in Dunbarton February 22, 1859, second son of Hezekiah and Eliza Ann Bunton Barnard. Wesley, at the age of six years, moved with his parents and family to Hebron. He received his education in the schools of Hebron and Plymouth. When a young man he learned the meat cutting trade in Piper's Market and other markets of Plymouth and Woodsville. He, at one time, conducted a market of his own, and later a milk route in Plymouth.
June 15, 1885, he married Eveline Sanborn, daughter of John and Adaline Sanborn of Plymouth. From this union there were two sons, John , who survives him, and Charles who gave his life in the service of his country, during the World War. He at one time served his town as police officer and selectman. His greatest achievement and success probably was in the carrying on of his farm in South Plymouth. He was one of the most successful and outstanding farmers of the town and his strong determination carried him through many trying times. He was a man, never refusing those in need.
The funeral services were held Tuesday, February 6, with prayer at the house and services at the Methodist Church with Reverend Charles Kelley officiating. "Face to Face" and "Asleep with Jesus" were beautifully rendered by Haven Eastman, accompanied by Philip Spaulding, organist.
The bearers were George Tupper, Joe Tupper, Elmer Glover and Everett Keniston. The many beautiful floral tributes showed the esteem in which Mr Barnard was held. Cleave Barnard, the only surviving member of the family of three boys and two girls, now resides in Concord.
