Obituary

Charles M. Batchelder died Friday morning at the home of James Martin in the West end, where he had been boarding for some months. Mr. Batchelder, who was badly afflicted with asthma, had been ill for about ten days, but passed away rather suddenly at the last. He was a veteran of the Civil War, having enlisted from the town of Troy in Co. E, 9th Regt. Vt. Vols. He was a pensioner and for many years his financial affairs have been ably looked after by C.M. Bailey. The funeral was held Saturday afternoon at Mr. Martin's and interment was at West Derby.
