George W. Mead
Rutland Daily Herald, April 5, 1912:
George W. Mead, an old resident of Rutland, and a Civil war veteran, was found dead by the roadside at the corner of North and North Main streets, shortly after 8 o'clock last night. His death was due to a sudden attack of heart failure, and no one was near enough to notice in the darkness his collapse and death near the sidewalk. The body was found by Mr. Bora, of McKinley avenue, of the vicinity of Mill Village, as he was driving home from the city, a little after 8 o'clock. The driver noticed the figure all huddled up by the roadside, and inspection disclosed the old man to be dead. The body was brought into the house of William E. Reynolds, No. 145 North Main street, where it was identified. Health Officer C.F. Ball was summoned, and pronounced death due to heart disease. The body was taken back to the home of Miss G. Sadie Smith, No. 170 North Main street, where he lived.
Mr. Mead was 72 years old, and had lived in Rutland for 23 years, making his home with Miss Smith. He had been troubled with heart disease for a long time. He left his home some time after supper last night, and it is supposed that he was going to board a north belt car and come down town, when his malady became acute.
Mr. Mead came here from Lake George, N.Y. He was a member of the Grand Army post of that place, and of the Methodist church at Raceville, N.Y.
His nearest surviving relatives are nephews and nieces, who live at Lake George.
