Worcester, April 4.---In the death of Isaac S. Atkins, which occurred at his home in this village Wednesday afternoon, Worcester is again called to mourn the loss of one of its oldest and most highly respected citizens and the Johnson post, G. A. R., one of its few surviving members. Mr. Atkins was born at Richmondville January 3, 1837, a son of Harmon and Maria (Mann) Atkins. In 1864 the deceased enlisted in the United States navy and served on the flag ship 'Malvern' of the North Atlantic squadron. He was present at the bombardment of Fort Fisher, which was the last great naval battle of the war. Mr. Atkins has been a resident of Worcester since 1848 and was twice married, his first wife being Elvira Shelland, of this village. On February 25, 1870, he was united in marriage with Miss Flora Waterman of this village, who died about seven years ago. Mr. Atkins was a member of the Congregational church for over 60 years, serving as a deacon for many years and as an elder after the church came under the Presbytery. Mr. Atkins was a carpenter by trade and many of the houses of this village were built by him. He was also associated in the hardware business with Austin Goodrich for some years. The surviving relatives are: one daughter, Mrs. D. B. Mereness of this village, one son, Ernest G. Atkins of Rockford, Ill., two grandchildren and three great grandchildren. He was of a fine Christian character, an honorable citizen and one who by his pleasant smile and kindly words made both old and young his friends. Funeral services were held from the home Saturday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, Rev. W. D. Jones officiating. Interment was made in Maple Grove cemetery."
