Obituary

DEATH OF CIVIL WAR VETERAN

Charles H. Hill Served Two Enlistments.

Charles H. Hill died Saturday afternoon, March 11, at the Soldiers' home. Mr. Hill was a native of Vermont and was born in Hartland, July 1, 1845.

He first enlisted in company C, Sixth Vermont, from Hartland in February 1862 and was discharged September 4, 1863. He next enlisted in company E, Vermont Cavalry, August 1864 from Windsor. He was wounded September 19, 1864 and was mustered out of service May 26, 1865.

Little is known of his early life except that he had lived in various places until he first came to the Home from Castleton in 1917. At one time he was postmaster at Taftsville. He left the Home in 1918 and lived in Rutland until a short time ago when he returned in an enfeebled condition.

So far as is known the only surviving relative is one son, Bert C. Hill of West Bridgewater, Vt.

The funeral services were conducted this morning by Rev. James A. Perry in the assembly room of the Home. The remains were placed in Park Lawn vault temporarily.
