Obituary

DEATH OF A VETERAN;

Middlebury-March 26-James J. Manney, aged 67, a veteran of the Civil War, died at his home in East Middlebury early yesterday morning after an illness of more than two years, which finally resulted in brain disease. The immediate cause of death was a shock of paralysis, which he suffered Wednesday last.

Mr. Manney was a member of the First Battery, heavy Artillery, 11th Vermont volunteers, and saw a good deal of strenuous service.

He leaves a wife, and one daughter, Mrs. Fred T. Skinner, of Chicago. The funeral services will be held at the house at 2 o'clock Wednesday afternoon, and the burial will be in Prospect Cemetery. The Rev. C. S. Murkland will officiate.
