DEAD BESIDE HIS TEAM-PROBABLY DIED OF HEART FAILURE
MR. CAMERON WAS ENGAGED IN COLLECTING MILK TO TAKE TO MONTPELIER CREAMER. BODY FOUND BY M. L. KELLY.
Montpelier, Jan. 16-- The body of James Cameron was found in the road on East Hill in Middlesex yesterday afternoon. Death was undoubtedly caused by heart failure. The discovery was made by M. N. Kelly, who lives nearby. The remains were lying near the two horse sled in which he hauled milk from the Middlesex farms to the creamery in Montpelier. The horses were unhitched from the sled, and apparently, Mr. Cameron had done so to get around a snow drift, and he had been started in search of aid to start the sled when the death summons came. He had been troubled with heart failure.
Report of the discovery was made to the first selectman, Chapin, and the body was taken to the home of A. R. Vaughn, where the man lived. Mr. Cameron was in the habit passing the Kelly house at 11 o'clock in the morning but did not go by until afternoon yesterday. He collected milk and carried it to the creamery in this city. His brother, L. M. Cameron, is manager of the local creamery. He went to Middlesex yesterday afternoon, on receipt of the news.
The deceased was 59 years of age and leaves a widow, and three children, two daughters who reside in Barton, and a son who lives in Middlesex.
