Obituary

Chandler F. Wellman died Friday of last week at his home East of the village at the advanced age of 70 years, the result of the shock reported last week from which he never rallied. Mr. Wellman has been out of health for some time suffering with heart trouble and his death is no great surprise to his friends. The deceased was born in Hinsdale, N. H., and was the son of Samuel Wellman. Coming to Wilmington when very young he spent almost his entire life here being employed at farming, carpentering, etc. He enrolled as a volunteer in Co. E, 8th Vt. And served his country for about one year, rendering faithful service. The only near relatives surviving, aside from his wife are one daughter, Mrs. Judson Brown, a son, H. O, Wellman, a brother, H. A. Wellman, all of this town, and a sister, Mrs. Maria Roel of Springfield, Mass. The funeral was held Sunday from the late residence, Rev. J. E. Farrow officiating and the body was interred in the Riverview cemetery. The local Grand Army Post attended in a body and conducted the services at the grave.
