Oscar Chandler
Veteran of Civil War Died At Home in Green Mountain Valley;

The death of Oscar Chandler, a member of the First Vermont Infantry, which saw service in the Civil War, occurred at his home in Green Mountain Valley Wednesday morning. The deceased had long been a sufferer from asthma, and had been in failing health for more than three years. Death was directly due to heart disease.

Oscar Chandler was born in Shaftsbury in 1844, and was married in 1870, to Josephine Cranston.

While serving in the Federal Army one eye was severely wounded from sickness contracted at the time of the wound. He has never since enjoyed perfect health.

Most of his life he was a farmer. Owing to his happy and friendly disposition he made a great number of friends, especially among the youngest people of the community, all of whom will mourn his loss.

Besides his widow, the survivors are, one brother, Myron of Branch Street, two sons, Clarence W. of Shaftsbury, and Frederick of Upper County Street, two daughters, Mrs. LeRoy Clum, Ms. Sidney Wait, and six grandchildren.

The funeral will be held Friday afternoon from the house, Rev. P. L. Dow officiating. Interment will be in the Chapel cemetery.
