MONTPELIER --- DR. PRENTISS J. KENT, AGED 85, DIED OF OLD AGE SATURDAY NIGHT.
Dr. Prentiss J. Kent, aged 85 years, a well-known citizen of Montpelier, died Saturday night of breaking down due to advanced age. He has lived for many years on Main Street in Montpelier. He was a native of Calais, born September 34, 1834. The early years of his life were spent in that town. He was graduated from the University of Vermont Medical College, and later attended a medical College in Michigan, and then served as a surgeon in the army during the Civil War. Upon leaving that service he practiced in Winooski and Burlington, and then gave up that profession, and followed the work as a machinist in Worcester, Mass for some years.
He was twice married, his first wife being Elizabeth Atwater of Burlington, who died some years ago. His second wife was Clara McKnight Vincent of East Montpelier, who survives him. He also leaves a son, E. Atwater Kent of Philadelphia. He was well-liked among his associates.
The funeral will take place from the late home Tuesday morning. The body will be taken to Burlington for burial.
