      Obituary from a North Adams newspaper- Charles E. Shultis, 70 years of age, one time chief of police of this city and veteran of the Civil War, died yesterday morning at the Soldiers home in Chelsea. Mr. Shultis was born in Greenport, Columbia County, NY. His early life was spent there and at the time of the Civil war, he enlisted in Co. G, 159th infantry. His record of service was a good one and he was honorably discharged at the end of the war. About 40 years ago, Mr. Shultis came to this city. He took a place on the police force soon after, being one of the first members, under the old town form of government. In 1881 he was appointed to the position of chief of police, which office he held for eight years until he retired in 1888. He is survived by a brother, N. R. Shultis of Clarksburg and a son, Capt. Fred Shultis of the Medical Corps, stationed in Georgia. Funeral will be held at St. John's Episcopal Church in No. Adams, burial will be in Hillside cemetery. [3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13]
