11 Apr 1906 — Peacham, VT
Death of Mr. Ainsworth.
Harrison Ainsworth, whose death occurred on Wednesday, April 4, was born in Woodbury 65 years ago, though he has been a resident of Peacham for many years. He entered the army in 1864 joining Company I of the 9th Vermont Regiment, with which he served ten months. His first wife was Miss Abby Morse, of Cabot, whose death was followed by that of his daughter. In 1863, married Jane McLaughlin, who survives him with one son Orwell, and one daughter Mrs. Oscar Magoon, of this place. He has been a sufferer from heart disease ever since his army life and for more than a year has been confined to the house. For many months he has been nearly helpless, but his cheerfulness and kindness of heart seemed never to fail him. He leaves two sisters, Mrs. Ira Morse, of Morrisville and Mrs. J. Hopkins, of North Danville, also two brothers, B. F. Ainsworth of Danville; and Henry of Providence, R. I., and two grandsons Fred and Harry Whitehill, of St. Johnsbury. His funeral occurred on Friday, attended by Stevens Post, who conducted the services at the grave, Rev. P. N. Granger, officiating. Those present from out of town were William McLaughlin, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Beck and Fred Whitehill of St. Johnsbury, Mrs. Steven Thurber of East Burke, and Mrs. William Higgins of Barnet.
