Funeral of Floyd Porter Held at New Lisbon Home

New Lisbon, June 10—Funeral services were held here Saturday for Floyd Porter, who died suddenly at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Jerry Fredericks, near the Brick schoolhouse Wednesday, Rev. C. E. Vermilya of Garrattsville officiating. Burial was in the Butternut Valley cemetery.
The bearers were Elliot Johnson, Arthur Winters, Clarence Lewis and Jerry Fralick.
Mr. Porter was born in New Lisbon, June 26, 1863, and was the son of Elijah and Mary Porter. In June, 1893, he married Dora Chase. Besides his wife, he is survived by the daughter above mentioned; four brothers, Elmer Porter of Syracuse, Acel Porter of New York, Charles Porter of Norwich, Abbott Porter of Portlandville; a sister, Mrs. Minnie Gardner of Laurens and two granddaughters.

Comment: Probably the death notice is correct on his daughter's last name being Fralick instead of Fredericks. And Jerry Fralick was mentioned as one of the bearers. My family knew the Fralicks.
