Charles A. Collins died at his home on College Hill from enlargement of the liver at 7:45 o'clock Monday evening, aged 77 years and six months. He had been in failing health for two years but has been able to be about the village until two weeks ago. He was around the house less than two hours before death came.

Mr. Collins was born in Athens, Ohio November 4, 1837, and when five years of age was brought to Vermont by his mother, who is buried here.
