Death of N. W. Lillie

Norman W. Lillie, a veteran of the Civil war, breathed his last at ten minutes before six o'clock yesterday morning after a long illness with heart trouble and hardening of the arteries, dating from the middle of February. He had been unconscious since Monday afternoon and since last Thursday his left limb had been lifeless.

Mr. Lillie was born in Bethel, Oct. 1, 1828, and had, therefore nearly attained to the age of 83 years. He enlisted from Bethel, Oct. 23, 1862, as a private in Company A, 16th regiment, and lay for a time in a hospital at Fairfax, Va., in March of the following year. He was mustered out in Brattleboro Aug. 10, 1863, at the expiration of his term of service.

Returning to civil life, Mr. Lillie followed his trade of carpentering and engaged in farming on Camp Brook in Bethel. Twenty-five years ago he removed to Beanville and lived there until the death of his wife (Mary Corey) in 1901. Then he became a resident of this village and had lived here ever since with his two daughters, Mrs. Cora Robbins and Miss Carrie Lillie. He had one son, Truman W. Lillie, whose home is in Bayonne, N. J. Robert B. Lillie, a brother of the deceased, died in Montpelier Jan. 31.

The funeral will be held at the house on South Main street tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock with the Grand Army service.
