Fall Caused Death of Barre Man
A fall while walking along the street Friday afternoon resulted in inflammation of the brain, which caused the death of David Dudley, a veteran of the Civil War, at his home in Barre Monday. Mr. Dudley was walking along when he stumbled and fell striking his head on the curb or on the projecting grating over the entrance to the sewer.
He was not thought to be badly injured, although it was seen that he had a cut under his right eye, and no physician was summoned. He appeared to be getting along well and was out Saturday night, but that night he began to suffer severe pains in the region of the injury and throughout his head and death ensued Monday.
Mr. Dudley was 74 years old. He enlisted in Company E, 8th Vt. Inf., in 1861 and served his country over three years in the Civil War. He was a stone mason. He is survived by his wife, two sons, and three daughters.
