Dexter L. Chatfield, who has been falling rapidly at his home for several weeks from a gangrenous trouble with one of his feet, died on Tuesday from the effects of the same. Mr. Chafield was 79 years of age and is survived by three sons and one daughter, the latter, Gertrude Chatfield Wood, living in Boston. The sons are Pearl, who resides at home, Fred of Barre and George Chatfield of Montpelier. Mrs. Chatfield, who was the sister of William Owen of this place, died several years ago. Mr. Chatfield was a veteran of the Civil war, and since the close of the war had lived in town most of the time and as long as health would permit, worked in the shops here. He was a good musician, having for a long time been leader of a band here, and was also choir director in the different churches here for many years.
