STIMSON, JOEL H.       I.R. AUG. 21, 1890
Died, at the residence of R. Mather, this city, of paralysis, at 10:45 p.m., Friday last, Mr. Joel H. Stimson, aged 46 years. Mr. Stimson was a brother of Mrs. Mather, and had been an invalid for some months, and had made his home with his sister.
Mr. Stimson entered the army as a volunteer in October, 1861, enlisting in the 8th New Hampshire Infantry, under Col. O. W. Lull. At the time of enlistment, he was under 16 years of age, and ran away from his home in Milford, N. H., and went to Concord and enlisted. Two other brothers were in the same regiment, and another brother enlisted here in 1861, in the 18th Ohio, three months service, and afterward entered the 2nd W. Va. Cav. All three brothers served until the close of the war.
After coming out of the army, Mr. Stimson went to Toledo, O., and entered the service of the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern R. R., and continued in the service of that company until stricken with paralysis in December last.
During 17 years past, he has been an engineer on the M. S. & L. S. Road, running their fastest passenger trains; and for some 7 years past has run the pay train of that system. It was the terrible mental strain of running such a train that produced the paralysis that terminated his life. During his 17 years as an engineer, he never had an accident on any train he was running.
When here some fifteen months ago, to attend the funeral of his mother, he told his brother-in-law that the strain on his nerves was fast breaking him down, but he little thought that in fifteen months he would die in the same house where his mother died, and within three feet of the same spot, and of the same disease.
