"The burial of Will Lang occurred at Glover cemetery Thursday forenoon. Mary of the relatives who were unable to be present at the funeral atLisbon were present at the grave. Rev. A. B. Ross officiated. The following is clipped from the Lisbon Courier:

"The funeral of William G. Lang, whose death occurred Monday morning, was held in the Methodist church at 12.30 o'clock Wednesday afternoon,the pastor of that church, Rev. Joseph Simpson, officiating. Mr. Lang was a member of Concordia lodge of Odd Fellows and the lodge was present in a body. All places of business were closed and many gathered at the church to pay their last respects to one who during his few years' stay in Lisbon
had endeared himself to a large number of people and made himself deservedly popular with young and old. There were many beautiful floral offer ings. The bearers were James Moulton, Frank Robbins, James McGrath and Chandler Aldnch.

William Lang was born in Greensboro, Vt., 35 years ago and was the son of William and Mary McFarlin Lang. Prior to coming to Lisbon, Mr. Lang had workedseveral years in Orford, making his home while there with Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Cushman, who with their two sons, Charles and Fred, and daughter Miss Florence Cushman, were present at the funeral. Mr. Lang clerked several years for Ned G. English and later for Harry Clough. About two years ago he opened a hardware store m company with Burt Garland, under the firm name of Garland & Lang, but owing to ill health has for several months been unable to do much business. Last December he was married to Miss Louise Marston and the young couple commenced housekeeping in a tenement on School street. Last spring his condition became so serious that he went to Boston and remained for a time under treatment at the Massachusetts General hospital but returned home without having received much benefit. Besides his wife Mr. Lang Is survived by his father, William Lang, and; sister, Mrs. Isabel Bean, who lives in Glover, Vt. Another sister, Mrs. Alex. Dwyer, lives in Lexington,Mass. and two brothers, Bert Lang of White River Junction, and James Lang.
