Obituary

George C. Chamberlin

Lieutenant George C. Chamberlin died at the home of his brother, Capt. P. S. Chamberlin Sunday evening. He has been totally blind for several years, the result of exposure while in the army during the Wart of the Rebellion, and has for more than a years been a great sufferer from attacks of paralysis.

George Chamberlin was born in Newbury about fifty years ago and during the first of his business life he published the “Telegraph” in Bradford. After the war he went West where he was successful in business until he lost his sight. Although not lawyer he was elected state’s attorney of the county in which he resided. He was a man of very extensive and accurate information and notwithstanding his blindness he kept fully informed on political topics. He was a strong republican. He will be greatly missed by the public as well as his immediate family. He never married. He was a lieutenant in the Ninth Vermont regiment.
