William H. Hyde

Rutland Daily Herald, Aug. 16, 1888:

W.H. Hyde, who has been in a feeble condition for many months past, died suddenly of heart disease about 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon at his home on East street. He was down town in the morning feeling better than usual; but after his return home he complained to his wife of feeling bad around his heart. Mrs. Hyde gave him some medicine and he felt better; but it was only a few minutes later that she found her husband in an outhouse, dead. He was 42 years old and left a widow but no children. Mr. Hyde was a prominent member of Roberts Grand Army Post. He was formerly employed in the furniture store of C.G. Townsend on Center street, and later had charge of the public market on West street on Market days.
