Obituary

RANDOLPH
Death of Peter Sault After Much Suffering From Rheumatism and Gout.

About six o'clock Wednesday evening occurred the death of one of Randolph's highly respected citizens, Peter Sault, who had been a sufferer for several years with rheumatism and gout, He had been confined to his bed frequently but his death came quite unexpectedly at the last from heart failure. He had been sick abed for nearly a week but with no unusually alarming symptoms. He would have been 60 years old next January. The funeral will be held tomorrow forenoon. At the house the veterans of U. S. Grant post, of which he was a charter member, will perform their ritual service at nine o'clock and an hour later requiem mass will be celebrated in the Roman Catholic church, Rev. Joseph Therrien of Windsor officiating. Mr. Sault leaves a wife and ten children to mourn his loss, all of whom are here. George, Eli, Henry and Robert, Mrs. Fred Shequinne, Misses Harriet, Agnes and Mabel Sault are the children living here. F. W. Sault resides at Morrisville and Edward L. Sault at Vergennes. Three brothers, E. T. Sault, Joseph Sault and F. F. Sault, all of Randolph also survive. When a little more than 18 years old Mr. Sault enlisted in the second regiment of Rhode Island volunteers and served during three years of the Civil war, never once answering the sick roll. He was a carpenter by trade and an able one. He was a man of good judgment, honest in his dealings and a public spirited citizen whose death is mourned by a large circle.
