CAPT. HARRISON ALDRICH
Former Somerville Alderman Dies From Effects of Runaway Accident
Brattleboro, Vt., Sept. 5 - Capt. Harrison Aldrich, civil war veteran, former Somerville alderman and Boston commission merchant, died at his summer home in South Newfane, 12 miles from here, this afternoon from the effects of a runaway accident last week.
Capt. Aldrich, his son-in-law, William Dole, of Lawrence, and Mr. Dole's two children were driving to the Williamsville station one day last week when their horse became suddenly frightened and ran away. All four were thrown to the road, but Capt. Aldrich was the most seriously hurt, his injuries proving to be internal.
Capt. Aldrich is survived by a wife and a daughter, both of whom are here.
