The subject of this notice was grand-daughter of Thomas Chase, Esq.,
formerly of Farmington, Me., and was also great grand-daughter of Widow
Sarah Barton, who died in Norway, Me., February 1869. Fanni was was a
favorite in her large circle of acquaintances in Grammar school, Sabbath school
and in her neighborhood. She gave promise of usefulness in the literary world-
having several months contributed "local items," to a neighboring county paper
which were duly appreciated and often copied into exchanges. By the kindness
of friends she always had the Portland Transcript at hand. She considered it
necessary to her enjoyment, of saying "I could part with any other paper better."
During the past winter she boarded with her oldest brother in Littleton, N. H., and
attended an excellent school, bringing home a good report and many pleasant
memories. This brother and family could be with her in her last days of illness.
It was a sad sight to see her embrace her little niece and nephew and sister,
calling them little dears, when we knew she could never more enjoy their
childish sports. Her second brother residing in Newark, New Jersey was
permitted the painful pleasure only of attending her funeral; but it was
consolation to the "loved onee at home." Two other brothers were necessarily
absent, the third brother in San Francisco, Cal. Her death caused a shadow to fall
over her pleasant native village. Her funeral services day, were attended
May 1st, at the Methodist Church, Rev. Mr. Sherman of Piermont, N. H., happily
officiating while many youthful friends who were wont to meet with her on former
joyful occasions of this festive day, now mingled their tears and those of the
bereaved and mourning relatives.
San Jose, California, May 4th, of hemorrhage of the lungs, James A.
Harmon, a native of Buxton, Maine, aged 27 years, 6 months. Deceased
had been a resident of San Francisco for fourteen years; he was an only son,
loved and respected by all who knew him and leaves a wife and two children
in San Francisco, and father, mother and sisters in Maine who mourn the loss.
