Obituary

Montpelier.
WILLIS C. HAWLEY, WELL KNOWN FARMER DROPPED DEAD IN HOME

Willis C. Hawley, a farmer living on the Worcester Branch Road, dropped dead yesterday while sitting by the stove in his home. He seemed as well as usual in the morning, and complained of no pain, death coming instantly.

Mr. Hawley enlisted in the Civil War from Waterbury as Corporal in Company K. 17th vermont. He was mustered in August 24, 1884, and mustered out July 14, 1865.

For many years he had been a successful farmer. He is survived by his wife, formerly Miss Etta Tracy, and one son, Richard.
