Brenton M. Chellis

Springfield Republican
December 1, 1904
Died as Result of Old Injury
Brenton M. Chellis, 62, for 30 years connected with the Boston and Albany road, most of the time as a freight conductor, died of Bright's disease yesterday morning at 10:30 at his home, 41 Charles street, this city. He had been ill for a number of years. Just seven years ago a freight engine ran into his caboose and pinned him down in the wreck and he had never fully recovered from the injuries received then, and had never worked since that day. He was born in Manchester, N.H., and was the son of Elam B. and Sophie Smith Chellis. When the civil war broke out he enlisted in Co. I of the 14th Vermont regiment. At the close of the war he went to work on the Boston and Albany, living in West Springfield. He came to this city on Charles street 11 years ago. He was a member of E. K. Wilcox Grand Army post, Hampden lodge of Odd Fellows and Agawam encampment. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Ellen H. Chellis, a daughter, Mrs. Thomas M. McMasters, and two sisters, Mrs. Julius Porter of West Springfield and Mrs. Eugene Hosley of Hartford.
