DEATH OF HENRY C. BURWELL
Deceased Has Been Prominent in the Marino Sheep Breeding Industry.
MIDDLEBURY, Dec. 30. - Henry C. Burwell died of heart failure at his home in Bridport at 8 o'clock this morning. He had been sick for three or four months and for the past six weeks had been confined to the house.
Mr. Burwell has been for the past 12 or 15 years the most prominent marino sheep breeder in Vermont. In 1876 he took the first premium for a marino ram at the world's exhibition in New Orleans, and early last year he went to Australia with a shipload of fine wool sheep. Mr. Burwell was about 58 years of age and leaves two children, a son and a daughter. The funeral will be held Sunday.
