While on their way to work at 6:30 Thursday morning, workmen found the lifeless body of Charles Vanduzer of Stoney Creek, lying along the main line tracks of the G.T. R. east of Merritton, with every indication of his having been struck by a passing train. The unfortunate young man was a member of E company, of the 77th regiment, which is doing guard duty on the Welland Canal, and he was on duty on Wednesday and in the evening went into Merritton for the mail and as returning to the barracks, which is east of the village when the accident which resulted in his death occurred... The body was taken to Stoney Creek and the funeral took place from the home of his brother, Enoch Vanduzer at Stoney Creek, at 3:30 Saturday afternoon to Stoney Creek burying ground and the members of the company to which he belonged attended the funeral in a body and acted as pallbearers...He is survived by four brothers and one sister - Levines, James, Enoch of Stoney Creek, and William of Bartonville, and Mrs. William Clark of Toronto.
