David Mitchell of Burlington Dropped Dead at Vergennes
Vergennes, July 30. - David Mitchell of Burlington dropped dead here last night at about 6 o'clock. With a party of Stannard Post, Burlington, he had been to attend the funeral of Homer Kimball at Ferrisburg and after the services came to Vergennes to take the 6 o'clock train for Burlington. After supper at the Martin House the party started to walk to the station. When near the freight house, Mr. Mitchell said, "Boys, I can go no farther," and fell to the ground dead. He had been in especially good spirits all day. The body was taken to Harvey Ketcham's undertaking rooms, and was accompanied by L.A. Atwood of Burlington to Burlington on the 10:10 train.
