Samuel H. Price – This gentleman, well known to many of our citizens, died at Chicago, Ill., on the 8th inst., aged 47 years, and his remains were brought to this place for burial. Mr. Price was born in Greenbriar County Virginia. When a young man he came to New England, and received his Collegiate Education at Amherst College, Mass. After teaching school for a time he studied and practiced law in this village with the late J. D. Bradley. He then removed to Windsor in this State and continued the practice of his profession for several years, and after spending a year or two in Manchester, N. H. Superintending the construction of a Railroad, he went to the West and was employed by an Insurance Company and transacted business in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Chicago, Illinois. On the breaking out of the war he and his oldest son entered the service of the United States. He was Quartermaster of the 9th Regiment of Illinois Cavalry under Gen. Curtis and continued to perform the duties that office till sickness compelled him to resign and return to his home at Chicago, where he lingered under the fatal effect of that disease so common to our army in the swamps of the South.
