EDWARD BUSHNELL DEAD
Native of Bennington and Veteran of the Civil War
Edward Bushnell, a native of Bennington and an old time printer, died Friday night at the home of his son, Jason, in Brattleboro where he has lived for more than half a century. He was 76 years old.
Mr. Bushnell learned the printers trade in Bennington and worked for the late Charles A. Pierce who died in Waltham a year or two ago. His father, Jason Bushnell was also a printer and was associated with William C. Haswell on the old Vermont Gazette. After Mr. Bushnell went to Brattleboro he worked in the office of the Horsehold published by George C. Crowell and which was one of the leading magazines in the United States 40 years ago. Mr. Bushnell became foreman of the office and held the position for many years.
Besides the son with whom he resided, he is survived by another son, Alfred, also of Brattleboro and a daughter, Mrs. Harry Freeman of Chicopee Falls, Mass. Mrs. Bushnell died in Brattleboro two years ago.
He is also a brother-in-law of Mrs. A. W. Haff, Mrs. L. L. Armstrong and Miss Mary Welch of Bennington. The funeral services will be held from the home, 58 Elliot street, Brattleboro, Monday afternoon.
