Obituary

Albert A. Shumway, a young man formerly in the employ of Messrs. J. Estey & Co., who was stricken with paralysis some four or five years ago, caused by over-exertion in running to a fire at one of Estey’s shops, died very suddenly on Monday. Since his injury he had been subject to frequent spasms, and unable to do anything for the support of his family, which consists of a wife and two children. Mr. Shumway served in the late war as a member of Co. D, 16th Reg’t Vt. Vols., and was a young man of excellent character and habits. The shadow which hung over his later years awakened a sympathy, which, we are glad to know has not been wholly sentimental.
