Andrew F. Wilder, 66, the well known cabinet maker, died at his home on Horton Place about 5 o’clock Saturday morning, after an illness of seven weeks with septicaemia. Mr. Wilder was born in Jamaica Sept. 15, 1835, and was one of five children of Ezra and Sally Wood Wilbur. All of the family is now dead . With the exception of a few years he spent in Massachusetts, Mr. Wilbur lived in his native town until coming to Brattleboro about 35 years ago. He was employed five years for the Estey Organ Company, but since then he has been in business for himself, having a shop in Tyler and Harmony buildings, and for the past 12 years on Flat Street. In 1857 he married Fannie M. Brackett of Monson, Mass, and they had one daughter who died in childhood.

Mr. Wilder enlisted from Jamaica as a corporal in Capt. Ball's company --- Company D. of the 16th Vermont --- In 1862 he was wounded by the explosion of a shell in the battle of Gettysburg, July 3, 1863, and was mustered out Aug. 10 of the same year. He was a member of the Congregational Church of Brattleboro since 1875.

The funeral was held at the home at 3:30 o’clock Monday, Rev. H. R. Miles officiating. The body was placed in the vault at Prospect Hill cemetery.
