WEYBRIDGE --- Mr. Hiram Tyler, who died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Jessie Downing, on North Street, Burlington, on Monday last, was born near our village 80 years ago. His parents died when he was quite young, and he was taken into the family of. Mr. and Mrs. Lemas Abbott. Where he lived until his manhood. Mr. Abbott carried on the blacksmithing business, and Mr. Tyler learned the trade, and together they continued the business until old age made it necessary for Mr;Abbott to retire. Mr, Tyler then enlarged and added carriage-making to the trade, doing a large business for a country town.

At the call for nine months men he enlisted in Co. E., 14th Vt., and served faithfully until his term expired. At he Gettysburg fight he was detailed to carry the wounded from the field, and was exposed to fire of the enemy most of the time. Heo balls in his leg, which he carried with him afterward.

Twelve years ago he removed to Burlington, where he has since resided. Old age and infirmities rendered him unfit for hard service His home there has been with his daughter, Mrs, Jessie Downing on North Street, who had tenderly cared for him. He is survived by his wife and daughter, and Carlo Taylor, a distant relative. Mrs Tylers maiden name was Elizabeth Davis, also of this place. He was a good neighbor, obliging in all his ways, a man of few words and free from controversy., We shall miss his usual amount of summer visits at the old home here, where Mr. and Mrs. Tyler, now more than 80 years of age, have enjoyed the quiet of our village during the hot months of summer.
