Obituary

DEATH OF A. S. FLEURY SWANTON VETERAN WIDELY KNOWN FOR LECTURES ON ANDERSONVILLE.

St. Albans--Aug. 26---The death of Capt. Allen S. Fleury of Swanton occurred at the Sherwood Sanitarium Saturday morning at 4 o'clock after a long illness.

Captain Fleury was one of the youngest veterans of the Civil War, in which he had a long and honorable record. He was a survivor of the horrors of Andersonville prison, and had delivered many addresses on his experiences there.

For many years he was in the employ of the U. S. Government as a deputy collector of customs, and during the legislative session of 1910 was appointed by Governor Mead as his confidential messenger. In January, 1911, he was appointed by Hugh Hayes, as an inspector of the newly created department of weights and measures, which position he occupied at the time of his death.

Captain Fleury was 67 years old, and is survived by a wife, and three children, two sons and a daughter. The remains were taken to Swanton where the funeral will probably be held on Tuesday.
