Was Father of Henry E. Whitney of Chrystal Spring Ice Co. Wounded by Shell in Civil War.

Orlin Morton Whitney, 70, died of apoplexy last night at 10:15 at his home on Frost place. He had been ill some time. Mr., Whitney was born in Brookline, Aug. 16, 1843, a son of Daniel E., and Achaef (Ranney) Whitney, and came to Brattleboro in 1870. For 30 years he was employed in the ice business. In recent years he had not done much active work.

Mr. Williams enlisted in Company K, 9th Vermont regiment, and was wounded by the explosion of a shell at the battle of Chapin's Farm. Upon recovering sufficiently to leave the hospital he was assigned to hospital duty at Fortress Monroe and continued there until discharged from the service.

He married, in Hartford, Conn., Dec. 12, 1869, Miss Nettie St. Clair, who died six years ago. He leaves one son, Henry K. Whitney, of the Crystal Springs Ice Co., with whom he made his home, five grandchildren and one great-grandchild. He also leaves a half-sister, Mrs. F. J. Johnson of San Jose, Calif., a step-sister, Mrs. W. F. Howe of North Scituate, R. I., and a step-brother, Orlin Wheeler of Bradentown, Fla.

The funeral services will be at the home tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock, Rev. E. Q. S. Osgood, pastor of the Unitarian church, officiating, and the burial will take place in Brookline in the family lot.
