Click on the link for a PDF copy of the Permit for Burial, Entombment or Removal for Arnold R. Gibson.  The permit states that:

  • The permit was issued to Barber & Lanier, the undertakers for Arnold Gibson, in Montpelier, Montpelier County, Vermont
  • Arnold R. Gibson died on 14 Mar 1928 age 68 years, 6 months, 27 days
  • The cause of death was unknown, natural causes, sudden death, circumstances reported to States Attorney who authorized certificate without autopsy
  • The propose date of burial was 16 Mar 1928 and the proposed place of burial was Worcester, Vermont
  • The manner of burial was usual
  • The permit was signed by Jessie M. Putnam, Town Clerk, on 16 Mar 1928

This permit was microfilmed along with the vital records for Vermont and appeared on the microfilm immediately following Arnold Gibson’s Death Certificate.

The manner of burial was described as “usual”, which makes me wonder what an “unusual” manner of burial would entail.

Neither the Death Certificate nor the Burial Permit for Arnold Gibson is more specific about the place of burial than Worcester, Vermont.
