The friends of Alden J. Fisher were saddened to hear of his death which occurred at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Donald Stone at East Granville from the effects of a shock which he suffered on the 10th inst.

Mr. Fisher was 72 years old. He was born here and lived here except the last few years of his life which he spent in the Soldiers' Home. During the Rebellion he was a member of Co. H, 17th Vt. Volunteers; also a member of J. J. Hale Post, No. 66, G.A.R.

He is survived by a son Alden J. Fisher of New Haven, and a daughter, Mrs. Donald Stone of East Granville, and several grandchildren.

The body was brought here and the funeral was largely attended at the Methodist Church on Wednesday the 12th, the Rev. G. M. Moody pastor of the Methodist Church Middlebury, officiating. Burial was in the Cushman cemetery. The bearers were Ira Dow, W. C. Gee, C. B. Boynton, and H. E. Day. There was a profusion of flowers.
