Obituary

DIES VERY SUDDENLY
Morris F. Hunt, Civil War Veteran, Ill Less Than Two Hours

The death of Morris F. Hunt occurred suddenly at his home, 70 Prospect street, at 11:45 Saturday night. Mr. Hunt was taken ill with acute indigestion shortly after ten o'clock and died from heart failure a little over two hours later.

Mr. Hunt was 73 years of age and was born in Brandon, the son of Mr. And Mrs. William Hunt. He was married 49 years ago at Marshfield to Miss Lydia M. Boyce of Danville. At the outbreak of the Civil war, Mr. Hunt enlisted in Company H., of the 4th Vermont regiment, and served for three years.

The family came to Barre 27 years ago and since that time has resided either in this city or in South Barre. He is survived by his wife, one daughter, Mrs. James Young of South Carolina, and one son, Karl M., of this city. He was a member of R. B. Crandall post, Grand Army of the Republic. Funeral arrangements are not yet completed.

Friends are requested not to send flowers to the funeral.
