Daniel E. Chittenden

Rutland Daily Herald, Sept. 22, 1891:

Daniel E. Chittenden died last evening at his home on Nichols street after a long illness.

He was a native of Killingworth, Connecticut, but had lived in Rutland for many years. He enlisted from Rutland in 1862 in Company K, 12th Vermont regiment, and after his term of service expired he returned to Rutland. He went to work in the cabinet shop of L.G. Kingsley in 1866, and worked there until his last sickness. He had learned the carpenter's trade in New London, Conn., and was an expert cabinet maker, and had worked on many important jobs. His last important work was the finish of the inside of the Baxter memorial library.

He was taken sick on July 4 with a complication of diseases, and though he rallied a little several times he never regained his full strength and each relapse left him weaker.

Mr. Chittenden was a member and past commander of the Grand Army post, a member of Center lodge of Masons and a communicant of the Congregational church. He belonged to the old Killington steamer company and for many years was prominent in the fire department. He leaves a widow.
