Fletcher B. Goldsmith

Personals column - F. B. Goldsmith died suddenly Saturday evening about 12 o'clock. Mr. G. had worked hard all day and late in the evening, expiring a short time after his day's work was finished. The immediate cause of his death was a hemorrhage from a wound in his left lung, caused by a bullet fired by a rebel soldier, which went entirely through his body. His recovery from such a wound was considered miraculous.

George White of Rutland, VT was in town Wednesday to attend the funeral of his brother-in-law, F. B. Goldsmith.

Lewis Goldsmith of Ansonia [CT] came here this week on account of the death of his father.
