Obituary

ESSEX JUNCTION

George W. Crown Dies Suddenly Veteran of Civil War.

George W. Crown died suddenly at his home on Maple street at about four o'clock yesterday afternoon. Mr. Crown had been in ill health for many years and since breaking his leg eight years ago had been confined to a wheel chair. However, he had been able to get about the house and yesterday appeared to be unusually well. In the afternoon he lay down for a nap of about an hour and upon getting up went in the wheel chair to join Mrs. Crown who had just gone from his room to the kitchen. He had just reached the kitchen when he commenced to breathe hard and died at once. Mr. Crown was born in Fairfield 67 years ago last October. He enlisted in the Second Vermont, Company H, when only 16 years old. He served in several battles and in the Battle of Winchester he lost one of his legs. He was also wounded in one hand. Upon being discharged he went to New York State. He married in 1866 Miss Louise Buck. They resided in several places in New York State and moved to Montpelier. They came to this place about 25 years ago. He is survived by his wife and three sons, Justin and Homer of this place and Bert of Schenectady, N.Y. Mr. Crown was a member of R. S. Sherman Post, G.A.R., and Mt. Mansfield Lodge, K. of P. The arrangements for the funeral were not made last night.
