Peter Agin is dead. He died early Monday morning. For three weeks he had been suffering with a severe cold, but was able to be about. On Sunday he took his meals regularly, ate some new sugar, and upon going to bed expressed himself as feeling better than the day before. At 3 o'clock Monday morning, Chas. Lucas, with whom he lived, went to his bed and found him sleeping quietly. A little later he was breathing with great difficulty and could not be aroused. He died shortly after 5 o'clock. Peter Agin came to this town in 1858 when the American House was built. He was employed as hostler for many years. He lived a while with Michael Manning, and also a few years at Swanton with Jas. Kelley. For the last 10 or 15 years he has made his home with the Lucas family.
He was a veteran of the Civil War, being a member of Co. E, 7th Vermont. Peter was about 70 years old, unmarried, and as far as known hasn't a relative in the world. He was an industrious man, saved all his money, and leaves an estate of about $6000 dollars. The management of his affairs for the last 20 years has been entirely in the hands of E. L. Noyes, in whom he placed implicit confidence. As he made no will, and leaves no heirs, his property goes to the town. The funeral took place from the Catholic Church this morning.
