Charles Daniel Adams died at his home on Leclair Street yesterday morning about 9 o'clock of a complication of diseases, after an illness covering several years, although he was not confined to the house until last October. Mr. Adams was 57 years of age, and was born in Shelburne, but lived in this village a greater part of his life.

At the outbreak of the Civil War, he enlisted in Company A, 1st Vermont Cavalry for three years, being honorably discharged from that regiment at the expiration of his enlistment. He is survived by a wife, three daughters, Misses Irene, Loretta, and Mabel Adams, and three sons, Charles, Arthur, and Joseph, all of this place. The funeral will be held Friday morning at 10 o'clock from St. Francis Xavier’s Church.
