Obituary

DEAD BESIDE HIS TEAM:

Montpelier---The body of James Cameron was found in the road on East Hill in Middlesex yesterday afternoon, death having undoubtedly been caused by heart failure. The discovery was made by M. N. Kelley, 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 that he had been started in search of aid to start the sled when death 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. Vaughan, where the man lived. Mr. Cameron was in the habit of passing the Kelley 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.
