George B. Prouty, 75, a lifelong resident of West Brattleboro, and a veteran of the Civil War, died suddenly this morning at his home on Bonnyvale road. He had been in failing health some time, but death was unexpected.

Mr. Prouty was born in West Brattleboro, Dec. 26, 1871 (sic), a descendant of a family that had long been prominent in the village. He served three years in the Civil War as a member of Company C. 2d Vermont regiment. He had been unable to engage actively in business for a number of years.

He leaves his wife, who was Miss. Louisa M. Alexander, three sons, Elisha, Elijah, and George Prouty, and four daughters, Mrs. Leon Walker, Mrs Ellen Cain, May and Dorothy Prouty, all of Brattleboro, and one sister, Mrs. Henry Moller of Brattleboro.
