Death of a Former Resident
News has been received here of the death, last Friday in Winsted, Conn., of Philetus Averill, a former resident of this place, and well known by many here. His death was very sudden, and was the result of heart failure. Mr. Averill was born in Wilmington, Vt., in 1836, and lived there for many years. He came to this place and for some time conducted a restaurant here. He was a nephew of Mrs. R.B. Harvie of this city.
He moved to Winsted only a few years ago, where he lived with his son. He was a member of the G.A.R., and was well known in Grand Army circle. He leaves seven children, Mrs. Albis Pike of Wilmington being his daughter. His son, Frederick, is a brakeman on the Fitchburg railroad.
