John Birtel, aged 75 years, died yesterday afternoon at the home of his daughter, Mrs. A. D. Silloway, at 112 Loomis street, of organic heart trouble. Mr. Birtel was born in Germany 75 years ago last April coming to New York with his parents when he was seven years old. He went to Montpelier to live in 1887. Besides his daughter with whom he had been since last Thanksgiving, he leaves one son, Charles D. Birtel of Montpelier. He was a veteran of the War for the Union, and a member of Brooks Post, No. 13, G. A. R., Montpelier. A prayer service will be held at the house Sunday morning at 9:45 and the body will be taken on the noon train to Montpelier, where the funeral service will be held that afternoon at the home of his son.
