Alburg Springs

Hamilton A. Mills died suddenly Wednesday morning of neuralgia of the heart. Mr. Mills had been in poor health for two weeks, but was considered convalescent and was sitting in his chair reading the morning paper. Mrs. Mills had left him for about ten minutes and on returning to the room she found him dead. Mr. Mills was 77 years old. He was a veteran of the Civil War, belonging to the Twenty-Fourth Company of Heavy Artillery, enlisting from Fitchburg, Mass., in 1864. His boyhood days were passed in this town and for the past twenty years he had resided here. He is survived by his wife, one daughter, two sons, and one daughter by a former marriage.
