Obituary

Chauncey E. Harris; Dead Veteran; Civil War; Funeral Will Be Tomorrow

Chauncey E. Harris died yesterday at five o'clock at his home, 11 Brook Street, of Bright's disease. He had been in failing health for three years, but his last sickness was only five days duration.

The deceased was born in Worcester, this state, 69 years ago last July. He moved to Barre eighteen years, and followed the occupation of pattern maker. He leaves a widow, one son, Lester, a daughter, Edith Gay, and a step-daughter, Miss Jennie Lovell, of Bangor, Maine.

Mr. Harris fought in the Civil War, and was a member of Crandall Post, G.A.R., of this city. He was also a long time member of Aurora Lodge of the Masons of Montpelier, having been connected with that lodge about 31 years.

Mr. Harris was very fond of fishing and hunting, and on the beginning of the season for the sport he was always among the first to go out with his rod or his gun.

The funeral will be held at his late home tomorrow morning at 9:30 o'clock, and the remains will be taken to Worcester for interment.
