Obituary

BETHEL

Edmond E. Cushman, a veteran of the Civil War and past commander of David Lillie Post, No. 61, G.A.R., died Thursday at Dr. Greene’s sanitarium, where he had been several weeks for treatment. He enlisted as a private in Company A, Third Vermont Regiment, and served through the war, being transferred to Company B in the same regiment and commissioned second lieutenant May 28, 1865. He was wounded at the Battle of Cedar Creek, October 19, 1864. He married Marietta Bowen, daughter of Orville Bowen of this village, and she survives him. About 20 years ago they came here to live and he was prominent in town affairs, serving many years as deputy sheriff and constable. He also was prominent in White River Lodge, F. and A.M., and in the Congregational Church. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon at the house and at Cherry Hill cemetery, the Masonic ritual being recited.
