DEATH OF A. B. CLIFFORD.
Well Known Resident of East Montpelier Died Last Evening.
Amplyous B. Clifford, a resdient of East Montpelier for over fifty years and a veteran of the Civil war, died at 10 o'clock last evening at his home in East Montpelier village after two days' illness with bronchitis and heart trouble. Mr. Clifford suffered a severe illness two years ago, which left him in poor health, and he has been unable to pursue steadily his work as wheelwright, a trade which he followed for many years.
The deceased was about 70 years of age and he leaves, besides his wife, no near relatives, Eugene and William Whitcomb of Montpelier being nephews, and George A. Huntington of First avenue Montpelier, is a brother-in-law. He was a member of Brooks post, G. A. R. of Montpelier and belonged to the Wyoming lodge of Masons, North Montpelier. Mr. Clifford enlisted in the Union army July 27, 1864, in the 9th Vermont regiment, but was transferred to Co. E of the 6th Vermont. He was mustered out on July 29, 1865. The funeral will probably be held Sunday at his late home.
