The funeral for the late Edgar Thomas Daniels will be held today at 10. A. M. from the home on First Street. And the remains will be taken at noon to Vergennes for interment.

Mr. Daniels died Tuesday after an illness of six months, and he is survived by two sons, Asa J. and George, both of this city. He had resided in this city for the past 47 years, having come from Horicon, Wis. to learn the trade of millwright, in the shops of Edwards and Stevens of Winooski.

He was born in Sheffield, married Lydia Harrington of Vergennes, and built the first gristmill in this place. At the time of the war of the rebellion he enlisted in Co. C., 12th regiment of Vermont Volunteers, serving for one year. During this time he had an attack of typhoid fever, which ruined his eyesight, and, and by a special act of Congress, his pension was increased to $30 monthly.
