Fell Dead in His House

Walter Scribner of South Groveland, on Returning from City, Dropped at Threshold

Haverhill, Feb. 6, 1905. Walter Scribner, a well known veteran, died at his home in South Groveland yesterday just after having returned from this city where he had been in regard to his pension papers. He had just entered his house and as his wife asked him what he had accomplished on his errand, he fell forward and died the next minute in his wife's arms. He was a veteran of the 4th Vermont regiment, and 64 years old.
