Obituary

Theodore A. Chadwick, aged 74 years, died at his home last evening quite suddenly of heart disease. Though he had not been in very good health for several weeks, he took his accustomed walk down street last Saturday morning, calling at several of the business places.

He was the senior business man of the village, having conducted a harness making business continually 45 years. Before that he worked in harness shops about 12 years, so he was engaged in that work in the village about two generations, or since the Civil War period.

He was born in 1845, enlisted from Braintree in Company F. 12th regiment during the war. Coming to Bethel at the close of the was he became a charter member of Daniel Lillie Post No. 61, G. A. R., and for many years been its adjutant. He was also a member of White River Lodge N9. 90, F. & A. M., and was an active Universalist.

He married, in 1869, Ellen Blake of this village, who died several years ago. His son, Lynn T. Chadwick, of Windsor, and a brother, Eugene H. of Braintree survive him.
