Alexander Jangraw, one of the well known grocerymen of the village, died quite suddenly Monday, from the effects of a hemorrhage. He was born in Montpelier in 1846, and at the age of 18 years enlisted in the third Vermont battery and served through the war, being mustered out of service June 15, 1865. While assisting in firing a salute, some time later, he was terribly injured by the premature discharge of a cannon, his tight hand being terribly mutilated, and for a time his life was despaired of. About 1877 he began the grocery business in a small way and by close attention to business acquired a competence, and for several years he has owned and occupied one half of the Argus and Patriot building. For the past two years he has been in poor health and his death was not unexpected. He leaves a wife and two sons.
