Obituary

Second-Lieut. Patrick H. Hogan, First United States Cavalry, died of typhoid pneumonia, at Reno, Nevada, Nov. 21st, after only two days' illness. A general order, complimentary to his memory, and directing officers to wear morning for thirty days was issued by Col. Gillem, commanding the regiment.

He was buried with full military honors at Benicia Barracks, Nov. 23d. Lieut. Hogan was from Burlington, says the Free Press, where he has always had a host of friends, from his genial good nature and keen native wit. He was one of the first to volunteer in the war for the Union and was a private in Cap. Brainerd Peck's Company, in the First Regiment. Afterwards, he was a sergeant in Capt. Platt's company A., of the First Vermont Cavalry. He was a good soldier and was the life of whatever camp he was attached to. After the war he was appointed a clerk in the land office at Washington, where he remained, until through the kindly offices of Judge Poland, who had taken a great liking to him, he received the army appointment, which he held at the time of his death. The deceased was a nephew of Mr. Patrick Ryder, of Burlington.
