Hiram S. Buttles

Hiram S. Buttles, aged 72 years, died at his home in Brandon Monday of paralysis. For a week he had been in a serious condition.

Mr. Buttles was one of Brandon's most prominent business men. For over 20 years he carried on a grain business there. He was a very prominent member of C.J. Ormsbee Post, G.A.R., having served in the Civil War in Company G, 12th Vt. Regt. He had been commander of the post. Mr. Buttles was a member of St. Paul's Lodge, F. & A. M., and one of its oldest members.

He is survived by his wife and three sons, John S. Buttles, of Rutland, Dr. Ernest H. Buttles, a doctor of the faculty of the University of Vermont medical school, and Arthur H. Buttles, of Brandon, who has carried on the business with his father for a number of years. One sister, Miss Minerva Taft, of Brandon, also survives.
