James Whitney died at the home of his son, Frank Whitney, Sunday p.m. at the age of 67. He has been suffering for a long time with shaking palsy which has made him almost helpless for many years. He was a faithful soldier in the civil war, and has led an active life until sickness disabled him. The funeral was held at the Congregational church Tuesday at 2 p.m., the Rev. Peter Heller officiating. A. J. Blackmer had charge of the services. Mr. And Mrs. F. J. Sumner and Mr. And Mrs. W. F. Bump sang. The church was filled with friends who came to witness the last rites. He leaves three sons and one daughter to mourn his loss namely Edward J. Whitney, Frank W., Fred C., of Salisbury and Mrs. Will Dyer of Middletown Springs. The bearers were old soldiers, the interment being in the family lot in the West cemetery.
