Azro B. Diggins

The Vermont Journal, April 17, 1914

Azro B. Diggins, aged 74 years and 7 months, died at his home in this village last week Wednesday morning from hardening of the arteries and other complicated troubles of nearly five years duration being confined to his home nearly all the time. He was born in Stockbridge and had resided in Chester about nine years, coming here from Perkinsville. When about 20 years old he began driving the stage between Proctorsville and Windsor continuing the same for ten years or more. He served three years in Co. B. 9th Vermont infantry. During the civil war and with others of his regiment was confined to Libby prison several months. Previous to the war he conducted a real estate business in New York city.

The funeral was held last Saturday forenoon at the home, Rev. G. M. Morton of the Universalist church officiating. The body was taken to Weathersfield for burial. A daughter, Mrs. Nellie Conroyd of Hartford, Conn., a son, William of Putney, Conn., and Miss Mamie of Chester, an adopted daughter are the surviving members of the family.
