Obituary

Sidney N. Tilley

Sidney N. Tilley, a native and life long resident of Williston died at his home there this morning aged 71 years. The funeral will be held at the home on Wednesday at one o’clock. Mr. Tilley was a veteran of the Civil War, enlisting May 7, 1861, in Company G, 2nd Vermont and serving until February 22, 1864, when he was mustered out for physical disability. Mr. Tilley had been overseer of the poor and director of the poor farm for some years, was notary public and was identified with various interests of the town. He was past commander of Cummings Post No. 37, G. A. R., of Hinesburgh. Mr. Tilley was a successful farmer, and for many years exhibited fruit and vegetables at State and County Fairs. He is survived by his wife, who was Miss Jane Fay of Shelburne, and one daughter, Mrs. Alice Phelps of this city, and by a brother, H. H. Tilley of this city, the last survivor of his generation. Mr. Tilley will be missed in his home town and by his many friends elsewhere, as a man of probity and character.

Mr. Tilley is survived by his brother, Hiram H. Tilley of Burlington, the only one of the four brothers who served in the war now living.
