---Miss Winifred Hadley, granddaughter of D W Miller of this place, who has made many friends during her summer sojourn here, died in Boston Sunday at the age of 17 years. She was attending school when she was suddenly stricken with typhoid fever, which soon terminated in a fatal lung trouble. The remains were brought to this town Tuesday, and the funeral occured at Mr. Miller's house Wednesday. The floral decorations and the fittings for the grave were unusually elegant and beautiful and the grave was literally lined with flowers, many being sent by her Boston friends. Miss Hadley was a very bright and winning young girl, and the news of her sudden and youthful death will be received here with universal sorrow.


Brattleboro Reformer, November 28, 1884.


Winifred A. Hadley worked as a seamstress, and her monument shows her sitting pensively with her piecework. Winifred lived at 168 Tremont Street in Boston, near the Common, and died sixteen days after contracting typhoid fever.


Her parents were David W. Hadley and Helen Miller. Winifred's grandfather David W. Miller was a carpenter, lumber dealer, and contractor in Brattleboro, who married Mary Barrett, the daughter of Jotham Barrett and the former Abigail Pratt of Dummerston.
