Death:  The Bangor Daily News (Bangor, ME), Monday, 11 October 1948:  Two Bangor Men Perish as Flames Destroy River Cottage at Hampden.- Two men perished in a fire which destroyed a cottage on a high bank overlooking the Penobscot river at Hampden early Sunday morning.  The bodies, which were burned beyond recognition, were tentatively identified by Sheriff John K. Farrar as those of Carroll Peters, 43, and George Leslie Chapman, 38, both of Bangor.  The sheriff said that Peters had occupied the Hampden cottage as guest of an absent family; that Peters and Chapman, acquaintances, had been seen together in a Bangor restaurant Saturday night; and that two men answering their descriptions had left a Hampden bus late that night at the road leading to the river cottage.  Both were missing yesterday, the sheriff said.  Peters had been employed for some time by the Eastern Auto Supply company in Bangor while Chapman, who received his discharge from the U. S. Army last June after nearly six years of service, had recently been employed as a short order cook at a Bangor restaurant.  A motorist, driving along Route 1 in Hampden, discovered the flaming cottage about 4 a.m. and notified Bangor police.  Officers Neal Ryder and James Griffin investigated and they aroused Thomas McDonough of Hampden, whose home is located on the state highway opposite the road leading to the riverbank cottage which was ablaze. (More details followed.)

Peters, and a brother, Franklin Peters of Brewer.
