Thomas Canedy

Old Hotel Man Died In Hartwellville
Thomas Canedy Passes Away at Age of 78

Thomas Canedy, 78 years old, a native and life-long resident of Hartwellville, in the town of Readsboro, widely known and highly esteemed as proprietor of a hotel in that town for almost half a century, died at his home this morning following an attack of complications sustained three days ago. Although Mr. Canedy's health had not been good for some time past, he had been able to be about his home and do his customary work.

Mr. Canedy is best remembered as a sportsman and a great fisherman; always ready to play the genial host and to assist in promoting sporting events of any nature as long as his health permitted. He was a Civil War veteran, having served with a Vermont regiment, and an ex-member of the Readsboro G.A.R., which organization was discontinued some years ago. He was also a member of the Odd Fellows of Readsboro. News of Mr. Canedy's death has caused sorrow to his many friends and acquaintances in this city.

Survivors of Mr. Canedy are a widow and one brother, Benjamin of Buckland; and one sister, Mrs. Mary Russell, of this city. The funeral will take place at his late home Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, daylight saving time, and the body will be brought to this city for burial in the family lot in Southview cemetery. Rev. Daniel H. Clare of the First Baptist church in this city will officiate.
