Title: A Very Sudden Death
File Attachment:
Attachment Type:

Yesterday morning at a quarter of 11 o'clock Scott Crawford was engaged in conversation with Robert A. Chandler Sr., at his home two miles west of Marshfield. After having finished their business started to go Chandler said "I'll go along and let you out at the gate." After clsoting the gate Mr. Chandler returned to the house and sat down to his desk to write a check for a boy named Aldrich who had been working for him and was going to quit. He was writing the check when the girl, who was employed to keep the house, noticed his chin drop. She paid no attention to this. Soon she saw his head drop to the desk and at once went to him, finding him dead. It was a case of apoplexy, brought on, probably, by the sad trial of the death of his wife which occurred a few weeks ago. His death comes like a stunning blow to his relatives and friends. He was a man with the promise of many years before him of usefulness and enjoyment. Funeral arrangements are not yet completed, but it is probable the services will be held at eh residence Friday at 2:30 p.m., and the interment at West Lebanon.
