Obituary

Brattleboro Found Dead by the Roadside

Brattleboro, July 8 - The body of Frank Johnson, a farmer of Dummerston, was found beside the road near the Luther Houghton farm in Dummerston this morning by occupants of an automobile bearing A Connecticut license. The fact was reported to State Attorney E. W. Gibson and Health Officer Chester S. Leach of Brattleboro was also notified, and after viewing the body the latter gave permission to have it removed to the Johnson homestead. Mr. Johnson, who was one of the oldest residents of Dummerston, and a civil war veteran, had suffered for some timer with arterial schlerosis, being subject to severe heart attacks, evidently sat down by the roadside where his death occurred. He is survived by several children, among whom is Mrs. C. R. Aldrich of Brattleboro.
