Charles Chester Miller, 67, died last evening about 7 o'clock, from the effects of a paralytic shock which he sustained Saturday evening. Mr. Miller had been in poor health for four years and unable to work during that time, although he was not confined to the home until he was stricken last Saturday, and from that time he was never conscious. He was out as usual Saturday and spent the afternoon in West Brattleboro with old acquaintances. He reached the home about 6 o'clock and in less than an hour was stricken.

Mr. Miller was born Feb. 19, 1842, in West Brattleboro. His parents were Chester H. and Caroline (Eaton) Miller, who were lifelong residents of Brattleboro. His early life was spent in West Brattleboro, and he received his education in the public schools and Brattleboro Academy.

He served in the Civil War, enlisting Aug. 25, 1862, in Company F., Fifth Massachusetts regiment as a nine months man. He was popular and widely known in Southern Vermont as proprietor of different hotels. The two best known were the Glenn House in West Brattleboro, and the American House in this village.

He was Postmaster of Sedgwick Post, G.A.R. He married Miss Elizabeth Satwell of Brattleboro, Sept. 29, 1867. After their marriage, they lived in Brattleboro, Wilmington, and Williamsville, the greater part of the time in Brattleboro. Besides his wife, he leaves one brother, Thomas J. of West Brattleboro, two sisters, Mrs. Harriet Sellon of Somerville, Mass., Mrs. Caroline J. Holmes of Medford, Mass., and a half-sister, Miss. Delia E. Miller of West Brattleboro.

The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon at the home, 10 Main Street, at 3 o'clock, and burial will be in Prospect Hill Cemetery. Rev. R. M. Houghton will officiate. The service will be in charge of Sedgwick Post, G.A.R., and the bearers will be past Commanders.
