Obituary

HUNTINGTON
James Carpenter Dies Suddenly, Aged 80 Years - Served in Civil War.

The community was shocked Sunday morning upon hearing of the death of James Carpenter, as Saturday he was on the street as usual and apparently in good health. At midnight he suffered a shock and lived only three hours in an unconscious state. The deceased was born in Hinesburg, where his early life was spent. He served three years in the Civil War in the Ninth Vermont regiment. Uncle “Jim,” as he was known by all, had seen the tide of 80 years flow past him, yet he had a keen interest and enjoyment of life and in the years to come will be remembered for his kindness and cheery words of greeting to all. He leaves a widow, who was Amanda Place. The funeral services will be held at the house this afternoon at two o'clock.
