Another of the older residents of West Pittston passed away this morning about 5 o’clock, when death clamed Mrs. Chandler Williams, of Exeter street. Mrs. Williams had been quite seriously ill for several weeks and her death was not totally unexpected. Stomach trouble was the direct cause of death. The deceased was, previous to her marriage, a daughter of James Casterline, who came to this part of the country from Frankfort, N.J., many years ago, being one of the earliest settlers. She was aged 70 years and 6 months, most of which time had been passed in this locality, she having resided at Orange. She had been a life-long member of the M.E. church. The funeral will take place Monday afternoon from the family home at 2 o’clock. Two children survive.
