Obituary

EAST RANDOLPH
Death of William F. Gillett

William F. Gillett, a veteran of the Civil war, died Sunday morning from heart trouble following the grip. He had been in very poor health for many years and unable to lie down on account of persistent asthma which caused him much suffering.

He was born in Thetford, July 5, 1834, but enlisted in Randolph, Aug. 21, 1862. He was mustered into the service of the United States as a private in Company F, 12th Vermont regiment, and for awhile was confined to a hospital at Union Mills. He was mustered out July 14, 1863.

Mr. Gillett is survived by his wife and one daughter, Mrs. Kate Hardy of North Randolph. The funeral service was held Tuesday afternoon at his late home in East Randolph.
