Yesterday, January 5, at 12:30 p. m., occurred the death of Frank J. Blodgett, a life-long resident of the eastern part of the town of Sandy Creek. Mr. Blodgett was born Nov. 29, 1858, a son of the late Miles Blodgett. During his early life, he worked as a tanner in the employ of his father, who owned several tanneries in this town.

On Dec. 22, 1880, he was united in marriage to Miss Mary M. Hamer, oldest daughter of the late Thomas Hamer. Soon afterward, he purchased the farm where he has since resided and to them were born three children, Allan W., who died April 4, 1919; Bessie M. who died Jan. 6 1905 and Edward F., who with his mother survive.

Less than a week ago, he was stricken with pneumonia and although for a time, he seemed to be in a fair way to recover, yet at the critical period, his heart was too weak to rally and he quietly and peacefully dropped asleep.

During his life in this community, Mr. Blodgett, by his strict integrity and industry, came to be a most highly respected citizen. He was a man of sterling worth, unacquainted with hypocrisy or deception of any kind. He will be greatly missed in his home where he was best known and loved.

The funeral will be held from his late home on Sat., Jan, 8, at 1:30 p.m. Burial will be in the Wesleyan cemetery.
