JAMES CHANDLER----Many friends of James C. Chandler were deeply saddened Friday afternoon when it became known that he had succumbed to an attack of typhoid pneumonia after a week duration. Mr Chandler erected a house on Central Street last season, and less that two weeks before his death had opened the first store on Prospect Hill. He had undoubtedly over worked in arranging the store, and was in a weakened condition when the illness developed.
Mr. Chandler had lived in Brattleboro about fifteen years, carrying on the business of a painter during this time. Before coming here he lived in Ludlow, Proctorsville and Perkinsville, although he was a native of New York State, and spent his early life there.
He went to the front with a New York regiment in the Civil War. Mr. Chandler was three times married., and is survived by his last wife, who was Mrs. Jennie Everett of this town, whom he married about ten years ago. Mr. Chandler was the father of five children, a son and daughter by his first marriage in Stony creek, N. Y., and a son by the second wife in Cavendish, this state, survive him. Two brothers, Carmi and Charles Chandler are residents of Brattleboro.
Mr Chandler was a member of the Methodist Church, the Epworth League, the Y. M. C. A., Wantastiquet Lodge, of Odd Fellows, and the Grand Army. He was a man of religious nature, and was deeply interested in the work of the Methodist Church. He was accustomed for years to attend the camp meeting each summer at Claremont Junction.
After a prayer at the house funeral services were held at the Methodist Church Sunday afternoon. Rev. Mr, Hough spoke fittingly of Mr. Chandlers esteemable qualities. The Odd Fellows and Grand Army were present in a body, and took part in the service at the grave in the Prospect Hill cemetery. There were beautiful floral tributes, including a pillow of white roses and carnations from the brothers ad sisters, a star from the Epworth League, and a wreath from the Odd Fellows. Several relatives from away were present at the funeral.
