Obituary

Martin M. Whitney died at his late residence on Church St., on Saturday morning of an attack of heart disease, after having suffered for some months with heart and other ailments. Mr. Whitney came to this village from Barre twenty-six years ago, though his former home had been in Morrisville and vicinity. He enlisted in the 11th Vt. Regt., and performed an honorable service. Since coming here he has been engaged in mechanical labors, both as joiner and a cabinet maker. He was a genial, kind-hearted man, who kept himself well informed in current affairs. He leaves a wife and three daughters, Nellie Whitney of the West, (expected home today), Mrs. Carrie Whitney Gardiner, and Flora Whitney. The funeral services will be held this afternoon, Rev. Mr. Sheaff officiating.
