Heart Failure Caused Alson Wheatley's Death.
The community was shocked and saddened last Monday evening to learn of the sudden death of Alson Wheatley, who had been ill with pneumonia, but was considered much improved. The immediate cause of his death was heart failure.
Mr. Wheatley was a veteran of the War of the Rebellion and a much respected citizen in the town. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Mary Wheatley of this place; a son, H. D. Wheatley of Bradford; a daughter, Mrs. Effie Newell of New Hampshire; five grandchildren, Mrs. Grover Smith of Randolph Center, Kenneth Wheatley of Bradford, Mrs. Hawley George of Fairlee, Orville Wheatley and Alfred Newell of Massachusetts, and eight great-grandchildren.
The funeral was held at the house Wednesday morning, Rev. Charles Walsh of Williamstown officiating, and interment was made at East Brookfield cemetery.
