SAMUEL SIBLEY HUNT. Obit, October 1910

Samuel Sibley Hunt, 72, prominently identified with the business

life of Brattleboro nearly 30 years, died very suddenly early Tuesday

evening. He had not been feeling as well as usual several days, but

had been at the factory of the S.A. Smith company throughout each day,

as had been his custom many years. His death came without the

slightest warning, and under circumstances which deeply affected his

relatives and associates. Mr. Hunt drove regularly between his house

and factory in his daily trips. He was seen shortly after 6 o'clock

by two employees of the factory after he had harnessed his horse. He

started to drive out of the factory yard, but probably feeling

indisposed drove back again. No one saw him after this, but he

undoubtedly sustained a shock and fell from his carriage. He

frequently took men from the factory to their homes, so that his

failure to reach home promptly was not surprising for some time. When

Mrs. Hunt became alarmed and sought assistance there was some delay in

finding G.H. Boorn, a neighbor and employee at the factory, and in

reaching Frank L. Hunt by telephone. These two men started for the

factory about the same time. After some search they found Mr. Hunt's

horse and carriage in the upper end of the mill yard. A few minutes

later the body of Mr. Hunt was found a short distance from the

automobile house and only a few rods from the barn. Dr. H.P. Greene,

who soon arrived, found that life had been extinct but a short time.

The body was taken to Moran & Co's undertaking rooms and the following

day was borne to the home on Green street. The funeral will be held

in the home this afternoon at 2 o'clock.
