Obituary

GEN. GEORGE S. DODGE

Gen. Geo. S. Dodge, son of William P. Dodge of this place, died in California on Wednesday of last week. Gen. Dodge was born, we believe, in Irasburg, and has spent his early years in this county, where he obtained a good education, went to Boston while still a young man, and became connected with a leading mercantile house in that city.

When the war broke out he went to Washington, and for some months did a heavy business in army supplies. Having received a commission in the army he was placed in the commissary department, and soon after was put on General Butler's staff as chief quartermaster; after Gen. Butler's failure, Gen Dodge was assigned to Gen. Terry's staff, and in the successful campaign against Fort Fisher, had charge of the landing of the troops, as well as the commissary business, and showed so much skill, energy and courage that he received a brevet brigadier generalship, afterwards receiving from President Johnson his commission. At the close of the war he was detailed to close up the quartermasters business of a portion of the Volunteer Army, and later was sent to Bremen as Consul. He remained there some years.

Returning to New York he married a wealthy and talented lady of that city, and afterward moved to California, where he engaged in stock and mining speculations. Three years ago he was attacked by a rheumatic or paralytic difficulty which increased in severity until he became perfectly helpless and blind, though his mental faculties were not seriously impaired. He was a man of pleasing address and lofty ambition, and was destined, had his health continued, to make a mark in his state and country.
