The community was startled and pained to learn of the sudden death of Fred P. Cheney, which occurred at his home on the evening of Wednesday last. He had been in rather feeble health for some time, but nothing serious was expected. For a day or two he had been ailing somewhat and called Dr. Skinner the afternoon previous to his death. His condition did not seem to warrant alarm. Mr. Cheney was a man well-known in this vicinity, and his acquaintance was broadened by his political affiliations, and the fact that that some time he has published and circulated the organ called the Green Mountain Kicker. He was man well versed in matters, a writer of no mean ability, and a pleasant and genial townsman. He was a veteran of the late war and suffered much from a very severe gunshot wound. He leaves a wife, two sons, Reuben and Fred, of Manchester, N. H. His funeral was held Saturday, Rev. W. E. Douglass officiating. Mason Post. G. A. R., of which he was a member, was present in a body.
