Culbert W. Mathews

Culbert W. Mathews died at his late home, 28 State street, yesterday afternoon following an illness which has lasted two years. Death was due to complications. Mr. Mathews, a veteran of the Civil war, was a member of the Second Regiment, Co. E, N. Y. Cavalry, and was born in West Port, N. Y., in 1843, in which place he lived, coming to this city. He has been a resident of this city during the past 26 years, being a regular attendant of Notre Dame church.

Surviving are the following: A widow, three sons and two daughters, George, of Pawtucket, R. I., Fred, of Fall River; William, of Manchester, N. H.; Mrs. Florence Houghton, of Lowell, and Linnie Mathews, at whose home he died in this city.

The funeral arrangements have not been completed, but it is probable that it will be held from Notre Dame church during the latter part of the week.
