DEATH OF AGED VETERAN

Robert Collins, of Bennington Was

Almost 91 Years Old.

Bennington, June 1 - Robert Collins, the oldest veteran of the Civil War in Bennington county, and probably one of the oldest, if not the oldest in the State, died shortly before noon at the soldiers' home today. He would have been 91 years old had he lived until June 19. He served three years in the First Vermont battery and was promoted to be a sergeant. Previous to enlisting for the Civil War he had served as a corporal in the British army.
