DIED. At Holyoke, January 20, of lung fever, J.O. Spaulding, in his 63d year. He took a very severe cold which soon developed into lung fever.


 J.O. Spaulding was one of the boys in blue, enlisting in an Iowa regiment and serving during most of the war. He removed with his family, from Iowa to Holyoke in the fall of 1888. He was a member of the Christian church and took quite an active part in the church work.


It is only a few months since he follows the remains of his wife to the cemetery. He leaves two small children a boy and a girl. One by one the old soldiers are passing away and it is only when we see the grey haired veterans following the remains of a comrade to the last resting place that we realize the time that has passed since these boys came home from the war.


The funeral services were conducted under the management of the G.A.R. Post of which the deceased was a member. The funeral sermon was preached by Rev. Moore at the M.E. church Thursday.
