Obituary

WATERBURY
Funeral of William P. Hills Was Held Saturday Morning

The funeral of William P. Hills, who died at the Vermont State Hospital, was held from the laboratory of that institution Saturday morning, Rev. George H. Lock officiating. The bearers were Messrs. Adams, McCuen, Huntington and Supt. E. A. Stanley, M. D., of the hospital. Burial was in the family lot in the village cemetery. The deceased was the son of Gideon and Mary Hills and was born in Waterbury about 76 tars ago. He served four years in the Civil war and was in many of the prominent battles. Because of mental trouble, which developed soon after he reached home, he was taken to Brattleboro and removed here, when the state hospital was built. Some of the older people will remember him. He was a brother of the late Mrs. George Nash.
