James K. P. Carlin

The Vermont Journal, September 11, 1909

Another Old Veteran Dead.

James Carlin, a member of Co. F., 3rd Vermont Volunteers, died at his home on State St., early Sunday morning, after a long illness from which he was a great sufferer. He was born in Barnard, May 30, 1846, was the son of Thomas and Mary Carlin. He enlisted March 10, 1862 and participated in many hard battles. At the battle of the "Wilderness," in May 1864, he was severely wounded, losing his left leg. He was honorably discharged and after regaining his health in a measure he went into the harness business which he conducted successfully for thirty-six years, a greater part of the time in Windsor. His patrons say that he was an honorable man to deal with, and always kept his word sacred. He is survived by a wife and one son. Funeral services were held at his late home, Tuesday afternoon, Rev. H. L. Buzzell, of Barre, Mass., former pastor of the local Unitarian church officiating. The remains were taken to Barnard, Wednesday morning for burial in the family lot. A deputation from the William C. Tracy Post, G.A.R. acted as honorary pall bearers.
