Obituary

James McKenna, an old resident of this place, died early yesterday morning at his home on Weston's hill after a lingering illness of a year's duration. The direct cause of his death was fatty degeneration of the heart, but he had been a great sufferer from a complication of diseases. Mr. McKenna was born in Williston 64 years ago, and has made Winooski his home for the past 21 years. He was a veteran of the Civil War, having enlisted in Troop I, First Vermont cavalry in 61, and being discharged in 65. He is survived by a wife and six children. The funeral arrangements had not been completed last evening.
