Alexander Spooner died Thursday at his home in Troy, N.Y., after a long illness. Mr. Spooner was born in Vermont sixty years ago, but went to Lansingburg, N.Y., soon after the Civil War, in which he served in Vermont regiments. For years he was employed as a molder at McMurray's foundry, Center Island.
