Obituary

DEAD BESIDE HIS TEAM
James Cameron Probably Died of Heart Failure
HE WAS SUBJECT TO IT

Mr. Cameron Was Engaged in Collecting Milk to Take to the Montpelier Creamery - Body Found by M. N. Kelly

Montpelier, Jan. 16. - The body of James Cameron was found in the road on East hill in Middlesex yesterday afternoon, death having undoubtedly been caused by heart failure.

Report of the discovery was made by first selectman Chapin and the body was taken to the home of A. R. Vaughan, where the man lived. Mr. Cameron was in the habit of passing the Kelly house at 11 o'clock in the morning, but did not go by until afternoon yesterday. He collected milk and carried it to the creamery in this city. His brother, L. M. Cameron, is manager for the local creamery. He went to Middlesex yesterday afternoon on receipt of the news.

The deceased was 59 years of age and leaves a widow and three children, two daughters who reside in Barton and Richmond and a son who lives in Middlesex.
