New Lisbon Man Dies
H. B. Ward Stricken With Heart Trouble Friday
Expires Few Hours Later
New Lisbon, July 6---Henry B. Ward, a farmer residing at Stetsonville,
suffered a severe attack of heart trouble Friday afternoon, and passed away at midnight. He was apparently as well as usual and had his team hitched to the mowing machine to begin cutting some grass when he suddenly called for his daughter-in-law to help him into the house, as he felt badly. After a short time, he seemed better, but at about 5 o'clock he suffered another spell. Dr. Bishop was then called and found it to be his heart and possibly the effect of the heat.
Deceased was born at Preston, Chenango county, October 28, 1858. His parents were William and Harriet Ward. On December 24, 1885, he was united in marriage with Adria B. Bailey of Morris. Nearly their entire married life was passed in the towns of Morris and Butternuts. Since the death of his wife three years ago, he had resided with his son, Cyrus Ward, at whose home he died.
Surviving him are two sons, Walter of Edmeston, and the one above mentioned; three daughters, Mrs. Fred Henderson of Edmeston, Mrs. Fred Turner of Morris, and Mrs. William Rogers of Burlington Flats; also 17 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
The funeral was held in the Methodist church of Morris of which deceased was a member this Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock, preceded with a prayer at the house at 1:55 p. m. Rev. C. E. Vermilya, pastor of the local church, officiated. Interment was made beside his wife in the Chapel cemetery below Morris.
The family has the sincere sympathy of many friends in their sudden bereavement.
