Nelson Drown died Sunday afternoon at the home of his son, N L Drown, where he lived for several years. Mr. Drown had been feeble for a long time, but was feeling as well as usual in the morning, and said he was going to church. He went to his room to get ready and not going out again as soon as expected his son went to and found him lying down.

He was 77 years of age and was an original member of Company I, 15th regiment, Vermont Volunteers.
