George Dickinson was born in Weathersfield, Vt., 4 Oct., 1841, son of Hubbard Bellows & Leafy (Spafford) Dickinson. He was not married. He d. 8 Aug., 1863. His town friends had the marker put on his grave. The epitaph: "T, of disease. "The soldier has stood on the battle plain; where every step was over the slain; But the shell and ball all passed him by, and he came to his own lone home to die. Twas hard to be numbered among the dead, 'or ere he could hear his welcome said; But twas something to see his hills again, to be laid to rest near his own loved plain. To think the friends of youth might weep, 'Oer the green turf of the soldier's sleep." He is buried in the GREENBUSH cemetery in Weathersfield.
