FOUND DEAD IN HOME
Groton Civil War Veteran Dies of
Groton, Sept. 25 - Frederick W. Glover, a veteran of the Civil War, was found dead Wednesday evening, at his home at the east part of the village. Dr. I. N. Eastman, who was called, pronounced the cause heart failure, and it was thought death occurred the evening before. Mr. Glover had lived alone since the death of his wife a year ago last January. Tuesday he went to South Ryegate to visit his sister, Mrs. Lydit Bailey, and that evening he passed with a neighbor, W.G. Welch, going home about 9 o'clock. Nothing was seen of him Wednesday and when no light was seen in the evening, Mrs. Welch went to investigate. Finding no sign of life she called Ray Wheeler, who lived near. The two found the bed had not been slept in, and searching further they found Mr. Glover in the bathroom. The house is not supplied with electric lights, but a small lantern hung near which had burned dry, leading to the belief that it had been placed there the night before and had burned it- self out.
Mr. Glover was 86 years of age and was born on that farm where his brother Henry, now resides. His parents were Mr. and Mrs. Otis Glover. He had resided here nearly all of his life, and enlisted from this town. Mr. Glover is survived by one brother, Henry C. of Groton and one sister, Mrs. Bailey, mentioned above.
