Albert D. Grant

Albert D. Grant, aged 81 years, a night inspector for the customs port of Boston, and a veteran in the Civil War, died Sunday at his home in Chelsea, Mass. Mr. Grant was a native of West Fairlee. When the Civil War broke out he went out as a private in Co. A, 17th Vt. Vols. At the expiration of his nine months service he re-enlisted as private in Co. C, 8th Vt. Vols. Several years after the close of the war he went to Kansas, where he engaged in the stock raising business. About twenty-one years ago he moved to Chelsea, and for about a decade was in the harness-making business there. Eleven years ago he was appointed an inspector in the Boston custom service.
