Philip King, for many years in the employ of Timothy J. Hubbard, and lately of Erastus and John E. Hubbard, died of pneumonia early last Sunday morning, aged fifty-one years. He leaves a widow and two children - Jesse N. and Mary, widow of the late Elbridge Ainsworth. Mr. King was a quiet and exemplary citizen, and a man who made many friends. Under the name of Philip Gregory he served three years in Company C, Tenth Vermont Volunteers, during the civil war. After his discharge, in 1864, he came to Montpelier, where he had since resided. He was a member of Brooks post, and of St. Jean de Baptiste Society, and these organizations attended the funeral in a body at St. Augustine's church on Tuesday.
