Obituary

D.D. HEMENWAY, LUDLOW MANUFACTURER, DIES.

Daniel D. Hemenway of Ludlow died very suddenly at his home yesterday morning at 2 o'clock. Mr. Hemenway had just returned from a business trip to Montpelier and was taken ill with acute indigestion.

Mr. Hemenway was born at Ludlow, May 28, 1840. His business life had been spent principally in the towns of Warren and Granville, where in company with his son, he was engaged in the manufacture of wooden bowls. Five years ago last spring, he moved to Ludlow.

He took a deep interest in public affairs and was elected to the legislature of Vermont while a resident of the towns of Warren and Granville.

Mr. Hemenway was a republican also a prominent Free Mason, having been affiliated wit the Masonic lodge and the commandery at Montpelier. He was a Grand Army man, having enlisted in Company I, Second Vermont regiment at Ludlow, May 7, 1861, and he was severely wounded at the Battle of the Wilderness May 5, 1864.

The occasion of Mr. Hemenway's death is made doubly sad because of the recent death of his only son, Edwin N. Hemenway which occurred at Ludlow last Friday morning.

Mr. Hemenway is survived by one sister, Mrs. Carrie Page of Brandon and a granddaughter Miss Marie J. Chandler, both of whom were with him at the time of his death. Miss Chandler frequently visits in Rutland.

The funeral services will he held Saturday at 2:30 at the Congregational church in Ludlow.
