Special to The News.
...
BLANCHARD. -- San Angelo, Texas, Aug. 23. -- Word of the recent death of Edwin Blanchard, former postmaster here, has been received here. He died at Los Gatos, Cal., and was buried at San Francisco in a soldiers' cemetery. Mr. Blanchard, widely known both here, and in other sections of Texas, was San Angelo postmaster from 1898 to 1914, when he left here. He was given leave in 1899 to serve in the army during the Spanish-American War. Little had been heard of the former San Angeloan in recent years, until word of his death was sent here by a Legion Post commander on the coast.
