William David Aiken, who died at his home in West Dummerston last Saturday morning, was a brother to Mrs. Henry Stockwell of this village. He had a wide circle of friends and acquaintances throughout Brattleboro and vicinity.

Mr. Aiken was born Dec. 1, 1836, in Londonderry. His parents were Edward and Philanda (Stiles) Aiken. He spent his early life in his native town and went in 1854 to Dummerston, which has been his home ever since.

He was a Civil War veteran, having enlisted in Company K. in the 9th Vermont. He was a member of Sedgwick Post G. A. R. of Brattleboro.

Mr. Aikens death was due to complications of which he had suffered more than a year. Although he had been in a steady decline for a long time, he had kept up until the last four weeks when his suffering was so intense that he was confined to his bed,

The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon at 2 p. m. at the home, Rev. E. C. Clarke of South Newfane officiated, and burial was in West Dummerston Cemetery. The bearers were William Burnett, John Burnett, Frank Burnett, and Henry Stockwell.

Mr. Aiken leaves his wife, who was Miss Mary Wilson of Dummerston and his sister, Mrs. Stockwell. His brother Edward Dorr Aiken, who lived in Montana, died several years ago, and his only daughter, Mattie, died about six years ago.
