Edward C. Farrell of Oxford, Massachusetts, Interred at Arlington

WASHINGTON, September 9, 1902 – The remains of Edward C. Farrell were today interred in Arlington Cemetery.  He was a native of Oxford, Massachusetts, and served as a volunteer in Cuba and the Philippines.  He died as a hospital and was subsequently placed among the “unclaimed dead” for interment in the potter’s field.

The post of Spanish War Veterans was advised that papers of honorable discharge had been found on Farrell, and the funeral arrangements were promptly changed.  A casket was purchased, the flag he had served wrapped around it and the remains taken to Arlington with the usual ceremonies.
