Orleans County monitor., Wednesday,February 07, 1917, Image 1

Alonzo D. Folsom died of pneumonia at his home, on the Willoughby road, Saturday, Feb. 3.
Alonzo D. Folsom was born Dec. 3, 1846, the son of Dana Alonzo and Sophia Folsom. On Feb. 2, 1868, he
married Miss Katherine Curtiss, their 48th anniversary occurring the day before his death.
To them were born eight children: Dana A., who died at the age of twenty-four years, Edna, who died in infancy, four sons: Andrew J., of Lawrence, Mass., William A., of
Somerville, Mass., Joseph H., and Gilbert A., of Newport; two daughters: Eliza, wife of Dr. Gifford of
Randolph, and Etta M., a teacher in St. Johnsbury, who with his wife survive him.
Mr. Folsom served three years in
the civil war, a member of regiment 11th Vt., Co. K, heavy artillery and was a member of G. W. Quimby Post,
No. 76. A man who held a large place in the community in which he lived, a kind neighbor and friend, always ready to lend a hand in time of sickness or trouble, he will be greatly missed by a large circle of friends.
Funeral services were held from the late home, Tuesday afternoon, Rev. W. A. Warner officiating. Mrs. W.
M. Wright and Mrs. H. J. Stannard sang two selections: Saved by Grace and Rock of Ages.
The bearers were his four sons and the honorary bearers were his comrades: E. G. Colliston, Osmond Dwyer, W. H, Brunning and Jacob Downing.
The many beautiful floral emblems spoke in their mute way of the love for the deceased and the sympathy felt for the loved ones left.
Interment was in the South Barton cemetery.
