DEATH OF WALTER H. OLMSTEAD.
Walter H. Olmsted, in his 75th year, died at his home here on Thursday evening of last week after a long illness, as the result of a shock. He was the son of Julius and Betsey Olmsted, born here in 1842, and spent the greater part of his long life in East Middlebury. He was a carpenter by trade, as was his father and his father's three brothers, David Kneeland and Waldo. The last of the Olmsteds in the male line is Nelson, now residing in Fitchburg, Mass.
The deceased was a veteran of the Civil war, in which he served in Co. E, 14th Vt. Vols. A widow and one grandson, Earle Leno, survive.
Funeral services were held at the Methodist Episcopal church on Sunday afternoon, the Rev. F. H. Bidwell officiating. The bearers were Ernest Dewey, Charles Steele, C.E. Russell and George Eldridge. The interment was in the family lot in Prospect cemetery.
