" NATHANIEL BENNETT
Mr. Nathaniel BENNETT, who died the 23d ult, at his home in this village, at the age of 83 years, was the last but one ( Reuben BENNETT) of the six children of the late William and Lois (FLINT) BENNETT, of the Burnham Neighborhood. Nearly the whole of his long and useful life, was passed in Bridgton, the larger portion in this village, where he followed his life vocation of carpenter and builder. He married Miss Lorania FROST, of Norway, who died many years ago, and there survive them their two and only children, Mrs. Frank B. SIMPSON and Joshua F. BENNETT, of this place. In religious affiliations deceased was a Calvin Baptist; in moral and political life was ever a staunch anti-slavery and temperance man - in the latter field a member of various organizations, and a strict teetotaler. Indeed, to him could well be applied the term "soberly, righteously and godly," for he was a man good and true, and dies respected and lamented by all. The funeral was at his late home, the 25th, conducted by Rev. J. C. OSGOOD, and there were beautiful floral tributes. The burial was in Forest Cemetery. Mr. BENNETT died of heart disease, by which he had long been affected - his death, like his life, being calm and peaceful."
