Vergennes, April 10. – Eugene D. Chilson, a veteran of the Civil war, died suddenly yesterday morning from heart failure at his home on East street in the 82d year of his age. Mr. Chilson was born in New Haven, November 20, 1833, but spent his early life in Wisconsin. On his return to this state, he settled in Bristol, where for some years he was engaged in the livery business. August 21, 1861, he enlisted for three years in Company B, Fifth Vermont Infantry. At the expiration of his term of enlistment, he re-enlisted and June 23, 1863, received an honorable discharge.
After the war for some years he conducted a hotel in Huntington. In 1868 he moved to Wisconsin where he remained about five years. He then returned New Haven and after a few years moved here, where he has since resided. He was a member of Ethan Allen post, G.A.R., of this place. In politics, Mr. Chilson was a Republican. September 30, 1857, he married Miss Sarah Durfee of New Haven, who died only a few weeks ago. He is survived by two sons, Oliver E. of Middlebury and George R. and one daughter, Mrs. William A.
