Death of Frederick H. King
Native of Guilford and a Veteran of 16th Regiment.
Frederick H. King, 72, died at his home in Millers Falls, Mass., Tuesday. Mr. King was born in Guilford and lived there until 1862, when he enlisted in Company B, 16th Vermont regiment. After nine months service Mr. King received an honorable discharge and made his home at Worthington until 1872, when he came to Millers Falls and was in the drygoods business there 14 years. He was also in the livery and trucking business many years. When Mr. King first came to Millers Falls he lived on the Erving side and was a member of the board of selectmen of Erving eight years. Mr. King was always public spirited and took a keen interest in public affairs and was highly respected by the whole community. He was a member of the Armstrong Grand Army post of Montague and an active member of the Congregational church.
For several years Mr. King has been unfortunate in meeting with serious accidents. In 1909 he sawed his hand and arm in a circular saw, in 1903 he was struck by a train at the grade crossing on the Erving side, and in March 1908, he was stricken with a paralytic shock and had been in a very feeble condition since.
