Obituary

Death of Andrew F. Wilder

Andrew F. Wilder, 66, the well known cabinet maker, died at his home on Horton Place about 5 o'clock Saturday morning after an illness of seven weeks with septicaemia. Mr. Wilder was born in Jamaica Sept. 15, 1835 and was one of five children of Ezra and Sally Wood Wilder. All of the family are now dead. With the exception of a few years which he spent in Massachusetts Mr. Wilder lived in his native town until coming to Brattleboro about 35 years ago. He was employed five years by the Estey Organ company, but since then he has been in business for himself, having a shop in Tyler and Harmony buildings and for the past 12 years on Flat street. In 1857 Mr. Wilder married Fannie M. Brackett of Monson, Mass., and they had one daughter, who died in childhood. Mr. Wilder enlisted from Jamaica as a corporal in Capt, Hall's company - company D of the 16th Vermont - in 18862. He was wounded by the explosion of a shell in the battle of Gettysburg, July 3, 1863, and was mustered out Aug. 10, of the same year. He had been a member of the Congregational church of Brattleboro since 1875. The funeral was held at the house at 2:30 o'clock Monday, Rev. H. R. Miles officiating. The body was placed in the vault in Prospect Hill cemetery.
