Aged Civil War Veteran Dead

Hiram P. Kidder, a long time citizen of Newbury, and a veteran of the Civil War, died very suddenly Thursday. He had been about the house as usual and went to the barn. On his return to the house he sat down in a chair and then fell to the floor, dead. He was 81 years old and had been crippled for years with rheumatism. He has for some years drawn one of the heaviest pensions allowed. He is survived by his wife and one son, A. A. Kidder.
