Obituary

CHELSEA
Death of Walter Adams, 69, Veteran of the Civil War.

Walter Adams, who had been seriously ill with cirrhosis of the liver and other complications during the past two months, died at his home on Verhsire street Thursday morning and the funeral was held from his late home Saturday afternoon, Rev. John A. Lawrence officiating, and the interment was in the family lot in Highland cemetery, the bearers being George L. Hayward, H. O. Bixby, Eugene H. Kennedy, Elmer G. Reed, William, A. Reed, and L. Norris Lucas, all of whom are past captains of the local camp of Sons of Veterans. Mr. Adams was born in Waitsfield and came to this town with his parents when he was quite young and spent the greater part of his life in this town and followed the vocation of farming until his health failed some 12 years ago when he moved to the village and had since found employment doing such work as his health and strength would permit. Up to his last illness, he was always one of the busiest men in the village. He was a veteran of the Civil war and had recently passed his 709th birthday anniversary. He is survived by his widow and one sister, Mrs. Joseph H. Griffin, of South Washington.
