Nelson L. Hungerford died at his home in Franklin, of pneumonia, on Saturday morning last, at the age of 54 years. He enlisted from Highgate in the war of the rebellion, as one of the original members of L company 1st Vermont cavalry, but was discharged six months later, being physically unable to endure the strain. He was appointed to a position inn the St. Albans customs house about 1867, with the rank of deputy collector, which office he continued to hold until rotated out with the advent of the Cleveland administration, in 1885. Since then he has resided with his family at Sheldon and at Swanton, removing to Franklin from the latter place a few months since. His health has been frail for several years, yet the illness that carried him off was of but a few days' duration. Mr. Hungerford was an honorable man, an upright citizen, and will be missed in death. He leaves a wife and two or three children, who will receive the sympathy of a wide circle of friends and acquaintances.
