Obituary

RIPTON --- George Whittemore died at the residence of his son-in-law, Charles Coulumbe, early the morning of the 31st. He had done a day's work the day before in the morning. Mr Coulumbe had arisen and gone to work at W. S. Huntley's mill leaving Mr. Whittemore in bed. He soon after spoke to his daughter enquiring if it was seven o'clock, and she replied that the clock had not struck, went about her work, but soon hearing a gurgling noise from him went to his room and found him unconscious. She hurried to the mill and procured her husband and Mr. Huntley. A hasty examination was made but there was no pulsation of the heart.

Mr. Whittemore had been a resident here quite a number of years. During the Civil War he was a member of the 2d Battery, Vermont Light Artillery, and First Company of Vermont Heavy Artillery, and later a member of J.J. Hale Post G.A.R. His age was about 69.
