Obituary

Chelsea, Nov. 19---Edmon(d) F. Peters, one of the town's oldest and most respected citizens, died suddenly at his home at about eight o'clock Thursday of heart failure. Mr. Peters had been having a cold for several days, and while seated in his chair, passed away without a warning or a struggle. He was born in Bradford Sept. 5, 1822, and was therefore 87 years old. He was a veteran of the Civil War having served on Company C., First Massachusetts Cavalry. He has been a resident of this town for the past twenty-six years.

The funeral will be held from his late home Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock, when the services will be under the direction of members of Waterson Post. No. 45. G.A.R., of which he was a member.

He is survived by the widow, and one step-son, E. C. Bradbury of Springfield.
