The first death at the Vermont Soldiers Home in Bennington was that on Monday evening, Dec. 26, of Comrade Joseph R. Davis of Co. G., 16th Vt. Regt. He had been at the Home enjoying Christmas exercises, and after receiving his presents went to the cottage where he slept. On opening the door he fell, dying instantly of heart trouble, He was born in Hartland, Vt, and was 65 years old; was admitted to the Soldiers Home August 30, 1887, and was one of Vermont's soldiers that helped give the second brigade it's great record at Gettysburg in executing the brilliant flank movement under the direction of gallant Stannard.
