townsmen, being elected to several important offices. The

of Free Masonry, having entered the order in his early man-
hood. He was an attractive person, with black eyes and
hair and highly colored cheeks. He died at Athol Dec. 5,
1881. Mrs. Cheney survives at this writing. She has re-
tained her faculties well, and is a delight to all who meet her ;
her recollections bridge across nine decades, and help us to
realize the colonial period, from which the republic had
scarcely emerged when she first saw the light. And although
her body has become somewhat enfeebled, her inner life is
so clear and hearty that she seems a prophetess of the life
that knows no failing and no death.

The following obituary notice of Mr. Wilder appeared in the
local paper upon his demise.

Mr. Joel D. Wilder died at Concord, Tuesday morning, April
24th, aged 75 years. The deceased was a native of Barre,
Mass. After his marriage he removed to Oneida county, N. Y.,
from whence he removed to Kirtland, Ohio, in 1854, where
he resided until 1861, when he removed to Willoughby, where
he has since resided, and where since the death of his wife, he
and his daughter, Miss Hattie E. Wilder, have kept house,
except when he has made an occasional visit to his daughter,
Mrs. G. N. Tuttle, and his son, Mr. Henry Wilder, in Concord.
While making such a visit at his daughter's he was taken
with inflammation of the stomach, of which he died after a
painful illness of more than two months. The deceased was
a quiet, unobtrusive citizen, and esteemed as such by all who
knew him. He joined the Baptist Church more than 50 years
ago, and adhered to the same faith till the time of his decease.
Besides the children above named he left surviving one son,
Mr. Abel M. Wilder, of Kendall, N. Y., and two daughters, Mrs.
E. M. Taylor, of Lansing, Mich., and Miss Nettie R. Wilder,
of San Francisco, Cal. Dr. Charles Wilder, a well known and
highly esteemed physician, who died in Battle Creek, Michigan,
some years since, was a son of his.

The following obituary notice commemorates this estimable
woman.

At the age of 14 she was converted and united with the M.
E. Church, of which she remained a worthy member to the day
of her death. In 1858 she removed to Boston, and united
with the D Street Church. Until failing health deprived her of
church privileges, she was an earnest and devoted laborer in
the Lord's vineyard. When unable to enjoy the means of
grace, the light of her life still shone in her home, and she still
exerted an influence for Christ, while her own soul was ripen-
ing for heaven. She united, at its organization, with the City
Point Church, and hers is the first name that we record as
having passed from the church militant to the church trium-
phant. Peacefully her soul winged its flight, leaving upon the
countenance a sweet and heavenly smile. ' Blessed are the
dead who die in the Lord.' "
