Chauncy Shattuck

Death of Chauncy Shattuck

At 5 o'clock Monday night, November 30, occurred the death of Chauncy Shattuck at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Nelson Jaynes of Johnson, aged 77 years, one month and five days, death being due to Bright's disease ending with a shock. He had been in poor health for four years and had been confined to his bed but two weeks. Mr. Shattuck came to Johnson to live with his daughter about a year ago.

Chauncy Shattuck was born in Belvidere Oct. 26, 1831, and lived the most of his years in Waterville. Oct. 24, 1861 he enlisted in Co. A. 8th Vt. Regiment. He served three years and seven months in the Civil War. He was in thirteen different engagements, and was under fire 62 days. He was a man of noble character, a good neighbor, a steadfast friend, and will be greatly missed in the home where he was a loving husband and father. He was united in marriage on Oct. 26, 1858 to Mrs. Lois Huntley Potter of Bakersfield, by Elder Howard Watkins of Cambridge. They were to celebrate their 50th anniversary in October, but circumstances would not permit. The deceased is survived by his wife, one daughter, Mrs. Nelson Jaynes, of Johnson, one sister, Julia Shattuck of Waterville, and four grandchildren.

There was a prayer at the home Thursday at 10 a.m., then his remains were taken to Waterville, his former home, for funeral and burial, the Rev. C. D. Pierce of Johnson officiating. The casket was draped with a large flag presented by the family, and the bearers were members of the G.A.R.
