Charles Bruya, aged 70 years, died at his home on Smith street at an early hour on Sunday morning. Mr. Bruya had been in ill health for some time, and his death was not all unexpected. A widow and eleven children, six daughters and five sons survive him. Mr. Bruya was a soldier in the war of the rebellion, and since living in Middlebury has pursued the cabinet-maker's trade. The funeral was held at St. Mary's Roman Catholic church on Tuesday morning at 9 o'clock, Rev. Father Shannon officiating. The remains were interred in the Catholic cemetery.
