Obituary

ARTEMUS COLLINS -- Artemus A. Collins died at his home in South Shaftesbury about 8 o'clock Wednesday morning, Oct. 27th, after an illness of about an hour.

Mr. Collins was born in the town of Shaftesbury 76 years ago, and lived in South Shaftsbury all his life, with the exception of about a year. He was married to Caroline Pierce Sept 23, 1866. He was an employee of the Eagle Square Mfg. company for many years, until poor health made it necessary to give up work.

He was a member of the Methodist church for over 50 years and a steward of the church for over 40 years.

Mr. Collins was taken seriously ill about 7 o'clock Wednesday morning while at the home of his son Walter. He, however, walked to his own home a short distance away but died in about an hour.

Mr. Collins had acquired many friends in this town and vicinity, and his death is a loss to the community, and the community grieves with the bereaved family in their affliction. Besides his wife, he is survived by one son, Walter, a grandson, Edward, and two great-grandchildren, and one niece, Mary Rudd, of Bennington.

The funeral service was held at his home Friday afternoon. Memorial services were conducted by the G.A.R., of which Mr, Collins was a faithful member. Interment was in South Shaftsbury cemetery.
