Charles Hildreth died on the afternoon of July 2, after having been a great sufferer from heart's disease for many months. Mr. Hildreth had lived here all his life of 69 years and was a member of the Baptist church. He was a veteran of the Civil war, having been in a Connecticut regiment. His first wife was Ann Hall and to them were born two children, Will of Derby and Una, Mrs. Erwin Willey of Salem, Mass., who with the second wife, Mrs. Luella Hildreth, and other more distant relatives survive him. The funeral was held at the home at 2 p. m. July 4 and spacious house was nearly filled with relatives and friends. There was a profusion of beautiful flowers. Rev. O. S. Bancroft officiated and the burial was in the family lot here. Those out of town attending were Mr. Hildreth's children and their families, Mrs. Hildreth's children, Mr. and Mrs. Camp of Newport and Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Haseltine of Graniteville, P. Q., and a nephew of the deceased with his wife, mr. and rs. John Hildreth of Newport.
