Prominent Brattleboro Men Dead.

Two of Brattleboro's most prominent residents, Samuel H. Hunt and Col. Nathaniel C. Sawyer, died with 24 hours of each other.

Mr Hunt was found dead in the yard of the S. A. Smith factory, where he was employed, Wednesday night, October 26, death having been caused by apoplexy. He was 72 years old and a veteran of the Civil War. He had been connected with manufacturing firms in Guilford and Brattleboro since 1873. Colonel Sawy was 88 years old. He was for many years a teller in the now defunct First National Bank of Brattleboro. As a paymaster in the Union army he was brevetted for bravery in rescuing from the Mosby guerillas $25,000. A large part of his life had been passed as an employee of the pension department in Washington, D.C.
