Orange C. Whitcher died Sunday, Jan. 4, after several years of illness with heart trouble, and the funeral, which was largely attended, was held from the house the following Tuesday, the Rev. M.W.

He came to this town when 16 years of age and has been a much respected and useful citizen who will be greatly missed now that he is gone. On November 16, 1865 he was married to Ann E. Patterson in Greensboro. Mr. Whitcher was a veteran of the Civil war, serving in the First Vermont cavalry, Co. I, had held several town offices and was a successful farmer. He leaves the widow and one son, Carroll, to mourn his loss besides more distant relatives and friends.
