E.F. GILLETTE DIES IN WORCESTER HOME - Former Local Man was Prominent in Business Here Some Years Ago - Civil War Veteran

News was received here yesterday of the death of Elliot F. Gillette, 87 years, who passed away at the home of his son, Charles Gillette in Worcester, yesterday morning, following a week's illness. He leaves one daughter, Mrs. Edith G. Jones of Shelburne Falls, and one son, Charles of Worcester, also one sister, Mrs. Corn Gould of Wellaston. The deceased was born in Whitingham, Vt., and served in Co. F, 16th Vermont regiment in the Civil war. He has been a resident of Shelburne Falls since he was mustered out of the service and was for many years a prosperous business man in this place. He retired about 30 years ago. He was a prominent G.A.R. member and past commander, being one of the last four members of the once large and prosperous Ozro Miller post, G.A.R. He was also a member of the Mountain lodge of Masons and Mary Lyon chapter O.E.S.

Since the death of his wife a few years ago Mr. Gillette had lived with his daughter, Mrs. Jones at their home on Main Street. He went to Worcester a short time ago to spend a little time at the home of his son because of his daughter's illness. The funeral will be held at the home on Main Street Saturday at 10:30 a.m., Rev. Joseph O. Purdue officiating. The body will be taken to Springfield for cremation.
