County, died at 5:45 o'clock last evening at his house 26 North Benton Street.
He was in his ninetieth year, and had been in failing health for some time.
Capt., Co. G., 15th OVI

Born December 27, 1832 in Windham County, Vermont, Capt. Doolittle came to
Mansfield in 1853 and became actively engaged in business. He continued to
follow his business until the outbreak of the Civil War. Enlisting as a Private
in Company G, 15th OVI, Capt. Doolittle was later commissioned as a Captain. He
remained in command of his company until the close of the war when he returned
to Mansfield and again became engaged in business.

On March 14, 1866, he was united in marriage to Miss Martha Watkinson, who
preceded him in death nearly four months ago. The couple celebrated their golden
wedding anniversary in 1916. At the time of his death, Capt. Doolittle was one
of the oldest members of the Grace Episcopal Church. He was also a member of
McLaughlin Post, GAR.

He is survived by five sons, Herbert O., James S., William W., Rufus P. and
Milton O. Doolittle, all residing in or near Mansfield, and two daughters, Mrs.
Marion Leppo of this city and Mrs. E.F. Dent of Hammond, Indiana; also nineteen
grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and a foster son, D.D. Marston of Harmon,
Oklahoma.

Funeral services will be held Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock at his late home, 26
North Benton Street. (Submitted by Great-Grandson, Jim H.)
