"Funeral services for William H. Stevens were held at his late home on South Main Street, Friday afternoon, Rev. Mr. Goddard of St. Paul's church officiating, with burial in the Old South cemetery. Mr. Stevens was born in Woodstock, sixty-two years ago, the son of the late Henry B. Stevens, who was for many years manager of the old time Eagle Hotel of Woodstock, and afterwards of the Brooks House in Brattleboro, and the Mansion House in Greenfield, Mass. The son was a veteran of the civil war, having enlisted in a Rhode Island cavalry regiment in 1862 with others from Vermont, and gaining the rank of captain for heroic service on the battlefield. He was captured by the confederates during General Banks' Red River campaign in 1864, and returned home a little later on parole. After his exchange he resigned from the service, and entered the employ of Jordan, Marsh & Co as manager of one of their factories in Littleton, N.H. and later in Worcester, Mass. Several years ago his health failed him, and he has since made his home in Windsor with his mother, until her death, and sister, (Mary Stevens) who survives him."
