Death of Henry Eaton

Henry Eaton, a civil war veteran, born in Richmond in 1847, died Friday afternoon at his home in Bennington, where he has resided for the last 12 years. He had been ill for about three weeks. Death was due to apoplexy.

At the age of 14 he enlisted from Richmond in Co. C of the 8th Vermont Infantry and with that unit served throughout the Civil War receiving his discharge at Burlington June 28, 1868.

He is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Margaret Morse of North Duxbury, and one brother James S. Eaton, of this city. Interment was in the family lot in the Richmond cemetery, Sunday afternoon.
