D. F. Goodrich, 92, Civil War Veteran Dies at Brandon
BRANDON, March 24. – Lacking less than a month of attaining his 93rd birthday, Delano Francis Goodrich, veteran of the Civil war, died this morning at his Carver street home after a week’s illness. It is believed that he was the oldest member of Company G, 12th Vermont infantry, composing 101 men with Capt. E. J. Ormsbee in command.
Mr. Goodrich was a life-long resident of Brandon, born here April 24, 1843. His parents were Butler A. and Rachel Goodrich. When 20 years old, he enlisted. During his service he saw several minor skirmishes, and with his company, was on the edge of Gettysburg field, ready for battle when victory was conceded to the northern army. Returning home, he spent the remainder of his active life in farming.
He is survived by a son, Abbott B. of Washington, three daughters, Mrs. George Quilty of Dorchester, Mass., Mrs. R. H. Everest and Mrs. Frank Osborn of Brandon, four grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. His wife, Frances Torrey of Brandon, died many years ago.
The death of Mr. Goodrich makes M. L. Gibbs Brandon’s last remaining Civil war veteran. Both men rode in the Memorial Day parade last May.
