Found Dead in Bed,
Sylvan Beach, Sept. 28. Eli H.
Dyer, aged 76 years, a veteran of the
Civil War, was found dead in bed in
his room at the Lehigh Hotel, Sylvan

that heart trouble was the cause of
death. He was born in Otsego county
and had lived at Sylvan Beach for
the past 30 years. He was a carpenter
by trade but retired from active
work several years ago. At the outbreak
of the CIVIL War he enlisted in
Company F. l21st Regiment, and saw
considerable service in the army. He
is survived by one son, Austin Dyer
of Oneonta. A grandson, William
Dyer, resides in Rome. His wife
died about 15 years ago. Coroner M.
T. Powers of Rome was called.
