ADAMS, DR. F.W.

At the Union House, Montpelier, Vt., Dec. 17, ae. 71, interred at Barton. He was a well-known physician of that region, and was highly respected for his skill, and beloved for his devotion and tenderness to the suffering who came under his care. He had many peculiarities and caprices; yet he was a man of large heart, giving half his practice to the poor; and his grave was surrounded by many sincere mourners.

Elijah Lamberton
The Orleans County monitor, Barton, VT, January 08, 1872
We regret to learn that Mr. Elijah Lamberton, a well-to-do farmer of Marshfield, committed suicide by hanging himself in his barn on the 19th inst. Mr. Lamberton had been in poor health for a few days previously, but was able to be about the house and barn. He is the third brother that has thus committed suicide, and depression of spirits combined with a suicidal tint doubtless led to this sad result. A son of Mr. Lamberton was last spring elected collector of taxes in Marshfield, and the father became one of his bondsmen. The young man collected a portion of the taxes, and with the money bought butter. Some three weeks since he went with the butter to Worcester, and it soon became rumored that all was not right. Finally he sent home his tax book and papers and also word that he should not himself return. His father doubtless fearing the town would levy upon his property for his son's defalcation became depressed and the result seems to have been the suicide. He was a man of some sixty years of age and generally respected by his townsmen. - Green Mountain Freeman

Mrs. Thomas Maxwell
The Orleans County monitor, Barton, VT, January 08, 1872
A most melancholy case of suicide took place in the town of Putnam on Saturday morning last. Mrs. Thomas Maxwell, a lady esteemed by all who knew her, arose quite early in the morning, went into her kitchen where, it is supposed, she fastened a small strap around her neck, then stepping on a chair she fastened the strap to a hook in the wall overhead and deliberately hung herself. When found by some member of the family afterwards, she was quite dead. She had suffered from slight aberration of mind, at times, for several months, but not enough to occasion any great alarm among her friends. She leaves quite a family of children and a large circle of friends to mourn her untimely death.

Julia Russell
Date: 16 June 1840
Submitters Name: Pam McEachern
Obit: FOR THE NORTHSTAR. (Publication date 16 June, 1840)
Died at Cabot, Vermont May 22 1840, Julia, daughter of Henry and Emily Russell, aged 3 years.
The circumstances of her death were as follows: On the 22nd of last November the unfortunate child swallowed a large shingle nail, somewhat crooked and rough, one inch and a half in length. The day following she was seized with a high fever. Four physicians saw and prescribed for the child. Some supposed the nail to be in the stomach and gave medicine which the acidities of the stomach, was thought to be capable of consuming it. Others thought it to be in the lungs; if so, the final issue would be, probably, death. The result has been lingering and painful illness, attended with symptoms which filled the heart-aching parents with hopes and fears alternately.
Two days before little Julia died, when in a fit of coughing, the nail with corrupted matter was thrown from the lungs, nearly a fourth part consumed with rust. After this remarkable occurrence, had it not been for the addled state of the lungs, hopes would have been entertained of her recovery. But God who suffereth not a sparrow to fall without his notice, so ordered that on the 22 of May, just six months to an half hour from the time she swallowed the nail, Julia died. Thus we learn that human beings can live for months with a nail upon the lungs. Let parents be peculiarly careful what play things they give their children. The practice of giving them pins and needles, though they be threaded, is careless and wicked, because the life of the child is endangered, and from this circumstance we see also what protracted, painful and fatal effects arise from small and momentary causes.
Eternity alone will discover to the unbeliever and the skeptic the consequences of what they call little sins. The uncertainty and exceeding brevity of human life, should inlcine all to be thoughtful.
