Obituary

Ransom Hall, who died March 29 at the home of his sister, Mrs. Myra Nelson, was a man respected by all who knew him. He was a member of Co. B, 15th Vt. Vols., and Feb. 25, 1896, became a member of Isaac Blake Post, of which he was a faithful member, always ready to do all he could for the good of that order, looking forward to Decoration Day with a great anxiety that all would be done in the best order possible. He has been in poor health all winter, but took his bed about two o'clock and died about six o'clock the same evening. He leaves to mourn his loss one brother, John Hall of East Charleston, and two sisters, Mrs. Amos Piper of East Charleston and Mrs. Wm. Nelson of this place. The members of Isaac Blake Post laid him to rest in the village cemetery Sunday at 2 o'clock, Comrade J.W. Bargin officiated. The floral offerings spoke of the esteem in which he was held by his many friends.
