ALBERT G. PATCHIN DEAD

Sudden Death Friday Evening of Prominent Native Citizen

Albert G. Patchin died Friday evening from acute indigestion after being sick only about two hours. Mr. Patchin was a native of this village, a son of the late Capt. Lyman Patchin, for a number of years one of the prominent business men of this place.

Mr. Patchin was for some time in business here, after the death of his father, but of late years has not been engaged in active work. He has suffered from indigestion more or less for several weeks, but had been out and around the day he died and no anxiety had been expressed on his account. Late in the afternoon he had another attack and a physician was called who apparently afforded him relief. About 7:30 he came down from an upstairs room, went into the room where his wife was and taking up a paper commenced to read it.

About nine Mrs. Patchin looking at him, found that his head had dropped forward upon his breast. Examination showed that his life was extinct and that he had passed away, like one who foldeth drapery around him and lies down to sweet repose.

Mr. Patchin was a soldier of the civil war. He served in Comp[any A, 14th Vermont Volunteers. He was an earnest comrade of the GAR, was one the charter members of G.A. Custer post, and was its first commander having been chosen at its organization 30 years ago this year. He was also a member of the 14th Vermont Regiment association. He was a member of Mt. Anthony lodge F and A M and all concurrent orders and had held various offices in Taft Commandery, the highest branch of the order in Vermont.

Mr. Patchin was about 67 years of age. He is survived by his wife, formerly Miss Julia Hawks, five daughters, Mrs. Charles Bridge of Bennington, Mrs. George K. Turner and Mrs. Harry Hawks of New York, Mrs. Charles F. Burnham of Bellows Falls, Miss Nellie Patchin residing at home, and a son, Charles H. Patchin living in Bennington.

The announcement of his sudden death sent a shock through the entire community, as Mr. Patchin was known as a good citizen, a brave soldier, an honest and impartial man and a true Mason.
