Obituary

VERGENNES

Edgar Palmer Found Dead in Bed For 30 Years Church Sexton.

Edgar Palmer was found dead in bed yesterday morning by his son, Edgar, with whom he had made his home. The cause of his death is attributed to heart failure. He was about his accustomed duties Monday forenoon, but on coming home complained of pains in his chest and remained at home the remainder of the day. The deceased was in the 76th year of his age and was born in Huntington, coming while quite young to this city, where he has since resided. He leaves a wife, three son, Edgar and Charles of this city and William of Hartford, Conn., and three daughters, Mrs. Scott Yattaw of this city, Mrs. Frank Frost of Springfield, Mass., and Miss Katherine of Massachusetts. Mr. Palmer was a hard-working, industrious man. For the past 30 years he had been sexton of St. Paul's church. Of which he was also a member. The funeral services will be held at St. Paul's Church Thursday at 10 a. m.
