Prominent Citizen Dead
Dr. Edmund Weston, formerly of Vermont, but for many years a resident of Washington, and who died from the efforts of heat prostration, Wednesday, at the residence of his sister, Mrs. Mary W. Van Dyke, 1301 K Street north west, was a son of Judge Edmund Weston of West Randolph, Vt. He was born February 6, 1830, and received his early education at a military college, after which he entered the University of Vermont, and was graduated in 1859. Shortly afterward Dr. Weston removed to Boston and engaged in the practice of dentistry. While in Boston he was a member of the famous Boston Cadets. At the outbreak of the Civil War, Dr. Weston was commissioned Captain of Company F. In Colonel Berdan's regiment of Vermont Sharpshooters and served with distinction in the Army of the Potomac until the expiration of the Peninsula Campaign, when he was obliged to retire because of disability caused by rheumatic gout.
In 1882 he came to Washington and became associated with Dr, D. W, Bliss upon the old board of health. After that board was abolished he received an appointment in the War Department, where he remained until 1896. He was a thirty-second degree Mason, a member of the Theosophical Society, and for many years a Warden of the Church of Incarnation'
Funeral services under Masonic auspices will be held in Lee's Chapel, No. 332 Pennsylvania Avenue North West this evening at 6 o'clock.
