Obituary

Death of Well Known Chester Man

Philo Fuller, aged 81 years, one of the oldest men of Chester, died Sunday night, December 10, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Volney J. Wood, in Factoryville, after a short illness. He was the oldest member of Olive Branch Lodge, F. & A.M., and was the first candidate on whom the degrees were conferred when the present charter was granted forty years ago. He was also a member of Sheridan Post, G.A.R., at Weston. In 1863 he enlisted in Co. E, 5th Vt. Inf., and served eighteen months or until the close of the war.

Mr. Fuller was born in Eton. He was one of the best known farmers in Andover, where he resided until eleven years ago, when he sold his farm and went to live with his daughter.

Mr. Fuller is survived by three children, Frank H. of Northampton, Mass., Mrs. Volney J. Wood, of Chester, and Ellsworth L. Fuller of Jackson, Mich.
