William Dalling, one of the oldest painters in the borough of West Chester, died at three o'clock this morning at his home, on North New Street, at age 62 years. Mr Dalling had lived nearly his entire life in West Chester,PA. And at the time of his death resided in the same house where his boyhood days were spent. He had been seriously ill for over one year past with liver and kidney complaints and during that time suffered much pain. An operation was performed about one year ago, and it afforded temporary relief, but the disease soon made itself evident again and the physicians were unable to relieve his suffering. During the late war the diseases were contracted and he has been unable and he has been unable to perform any heavy labor during all the years since that time. Deceased was known far and wide as a fine musician, and he has held engagements as a tuba player with some with some of the best bands in the country.
During the war he was with the band of the 97th Regiment,PA Volunteers, and at the battles of Gettysburg he marched into the fight with the band of the brigade to which the regiment was attached. He was for several years a member of the famous Beck's Band, of Philadelphia, under L.D. Hyatt. The 97 Regiment Veterans will take charge of and conduct his funeral. Mr Dalling was the father of thirteen children. He leaves a wife and eight children to mourn his loss.
