Edwin R. Hall

St. Albans Daily Messenger

August 18, 1904

Capt. Edwin R. Hall

Through a clipping from the Knoxville (Tenn.) Journal, is learned the death of Capt. Edwin R. Hall, which occurred at the soldiers' home in Hampton, Va., July 5 last, says the Burlington Free Press. Mr. Hall was 65 years old. He was a Shelburne boy, and enlisted from that town August 23, 1862, in Co. C, 12th Vt. Vols.

He served with credit during the term of service of that regiment being mustered out at the close of the Gettysburg campaign July 14, 1863. Shortly after the war closed he settled in Jefferson county, Tennessee, and was, for a time clerk of the county court of that county. Twenty-five years ago he removed to Knoxville and associated himself with the Chronicle and continued in the newspaper business, being connected with the Knoxville Journal and later with the Journal and Tribune. About two years ago he went to the soldiers' home at Hampton for medical treatment and died there as has been stated. His family had not been informed of the very serious nature of his illness and one of the sons was about starting from Knoxville to accompany him back to his home when word came back he had died and been buried in the cemetery at Hampton. It is said that the body will be taken to Knoxville for final burial.

Mr. Hall is survived by a wife and four children, W. W. Hall, Miss Laura Hall, and Mrs. F.C. Reed of Knoxville, and E.L. Hall of Gulfport, Miss.
