Funeral for Mrs. Solomon Mead

The funeral services of Mrs. Solomon Mead were held at her late residence on North Maple avenue on Saturday afternoon at half-past four o'clock. The train from the city was delayed about a half an hour, owing to an accident at Port Chester.

The spacious house of Mr. Solomon Mead was filled to overflowing with the relatives and friends of Mrs. Mead. The room where lay the casket was most appropriately trimmed with potted plants and palms. A quartette choir sang a number of hymns, and brief addresses were made by the Rev. Mr. Hall and the Rev. Mr. Choate.

The pall bearers were George S. Ray, B.M. Wright, Shadrach M. Brush, A.A. Rundke. The internment was in the Congregational Church cemetery.
