Veteran of 1866 dies (St. Catharines Standard) - William Chellew, a former resident of this city, was found dead last evening in his home, 159 Bridge Street, Niagara Falls. Coroner McGarry made an investigation and found that death was due to heart failure. The deceased was 68 years of age and was well known in this district, having lived in Louth for a number of years. He was a son of the late William Chellew and had five brothers and five sisters. He was a veteran of '66 and was awarded the Fenian Raid Medal with one clasp and was a member of the St. Catharines Garrison Field artillery for a number of years, joining the left wing of the Welland Canal Field Battery at the time of its first organization here on Sept. 3, 1883 as quartermaster sergeant. He attended a banquet given in this city last spring by a number of comrades to his old friend, Wheeles Ben Mesler. At that time he was a member of the Welland Canal Protective Force, and had attempted to enlist for overseas service, in spite of his age.
