Obituary

James Wheeler

James Wheeler, for many years an employee of the Fairbanks company and well-known resident of St. Johnsbury, died March 21, in Willimansett, Mass. He went to that place from St. Johnsbury six years ago to make his home with his only son, Fred Wheeler. Funeral services were held at his son's home and the remains were brought here Friday for burial in Mt. Pleasant cemetery, beside his wife, who died here 21 years ago. Mr. Wheeler was a native of Lyme, N. H. He was a veteran of the Civil War and served for some time as color bearer. Besides his son he leaves two nephews, Perky Shepard of St. Johnsbury and William Wheeler of Lyndonville.
