Obituary Edward Chiswell Dead Was a Gallant Confederate And a Former Legislator. [Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun.]

Boyds, Md., Sept. 21. — Mr. Edward Chiswell, one of the most prominent citizens in this section of Montgomery county, died at his home at Dickerson’s shortly after noon today, after an illness of some months. About six years ago he was stricken with paralysis, and he had another attack recently, which caused his death. He was 70 years old.

Mr. Chiswell served in the Confederate Army with distinction during the Civil War, fighting at Cedar Mountain, second Manassas, the seven days’ fight before Richmond and at Brandy Station. He was a member of Company B, of White’s Battalion.

Mr. Chiswell served in the Maryland Legislature some years ago, and throughout his life he has always been a most progressive citizen. He is survived by his widow, who was a Miss Allnutt, of a prominent family of this section, and by four sons — Lawrence and E.L. Chiswell, prominent merchants at Dickeron’s; Lieut. B.M. Chiswell, of the Revenue Cutter Service, stationed at Wilmington, N.C. and Thomas F. Chiswell, a farmer, at home — and by two daughters — Mrs. Mary Darby and Mrs. Norman Wootten.
