Death of D. N. Coolidge
Daniel N. Coolidge, a former resident of Rochester who moved to Randolph about eight years ago, was found dead in his bed at 2 o’clock Friday morning.
He complained of a severe pain in his chest during the day, but kept around and even walked up town from his home opposite the grove n Forest street. The pain gradually grew wore off in the afternoon and he went to sleep as usual, but was awake at midnight and said he felt very comfortable and thought he should be able to attend to his haying in the morning. Two hours later Mrs. Coolidge found him dead. The pain and the sudden end are supposed to have been caused by heart disease.
Mr. Coolidge, who was in his 68th year, was a veteran of the Civil war in which he served as a member of Co. E, 2d Vermont regiment, U. S. Sharpshooters under Captain Homer R. Stoughton, lately deceased. His term of service lasted about a year and a half, and he took part in the battles of Bull Run, South Mountain, Falmouth and Fredericksburg.
Besides hi s wife, he left a brother, John Coolidge off West Medford, Mass., and a sister, Mrs. Albert Newton of Springfield, Mass. The funeral service was held at his late home at 10 o’clock Sunday morning, Rev. Fraser Metzger of the Christian church officiating, and the body was taken to Rochester for interment. The bearers were members of U. S. Grant post, and at Rochester the burial service was in charge of the G. A. R. Post of that place, to which the deceased belonged.
The friends from away attending the funeral were his sister, Mrs. Newton, and daughter, Jessie, of Springfield, Mass.; Mr. and Mrs. S. W. Howard, two daughters and three sons of Royalton; Frank Rand and Mr. and Mrs. Pearl Chamberlin of Barnard; Mr. and Mrs. P. A. Rand of Stockbridge, and Mrs. M. E. Adams of South Hero.
