Obituary

ONE OF THE OLDEST VETERANS DIES

Bennington, July 9. Stephen Gleason, one of the oldest veterans of the Civil War, died at the Soldiers' Home early this morning. He was born in Rowe, Mass., November 5, 1828, and was therefore almost 90 years old. His parents moved to Woodford when he was a boy and he had passed almost his entire life in that town. He enlisted November 27, 1863, in Company E, 11th Vermont and served for two years. He was admitted to the home October 19, 1905. He was a lumberman and many years ago engaged in the business of charcoal burning which was at that time a leading industry in the mountain towns of Bennington county.
