Charles B. Guyer

Morrisville News and Citizen: May 4, 1898

The community was greatly shocked by the sudden death of our esteemed townsman, C.B. Guyer, which occurred on Wednesday night. Mr. Guyer has been in poor health for some time, but able to be around and look after his business up to the evening of his death, which came to him without a moments notice, from heart failure. He was born here on Feb. 26, 1843, and lived at home until the war broke out. He enlisted, and was made Corporal Sargeant, and was soon promoted to Lieutenant. At the close of the war he went to Massachusetts to live, and from there moved to Chicago where he remained in the employment of a hardware firm and a street railroad company for fourteen years. He was married in Chicago March 15, 1885 to Frances A. Baker, formerly of Newbury, Vermont. They returned to Vermont some three years ago and resided in Newport until they came back to his old home to live. Mr. Guyer was a man of many sterling qualities, and highly respected by all who knew him. He was one of the charter members of the Masonic Lodge here, and was buried with Masonic Honors. His wife survives him, and her present feeble condition makes the affliction double hard for her to bear. The funeral service was held Sunday, with a prayer at the house, and services at the Congregational Church, at 2 0'clock, Rev. G.N. Kellogg of Morrisville officiating.
