Fair Haven, Oct. 14 -- The body of George A. Baker, a manufacturer and prominent citizen of Brandon, was found in the Castleton River at 8 o’clock this morning, near the wheel of the Fair Haven Grist Mill, by W. C. Crippen, the owner, who was repairing the wheel. Baker’s watch, it was found, had stopped at 8:20 o’clock, showing the time that he had met his death; there was a small sum of money in the clothes.
Baker came here yesterday on business, and called at the livery stable to hire a rig, stating that he wished to drive to Poultney. Mr. Carleton was unable to accommodate him, and he left the stable. Baker must have walked down the hill to the bridge, and losing his balance he fell into the river.
He was 60 years old and manufactured butter tubs at Brandon, also running a sawmill and cider mill. He has been a resident of that town for more than 20 years. He leaves a widow, two sons, Loren and Allie Baker, a daughter, Mrs. J. P, Harris, all of Brandon.
