Obituary

OBITUARY

Enoch S. Hoyt, (son of Deacon Joseph Hoyt) of Cabot, a member of the Veteran Reserve Corps, died at Sloan Hospital Montpelier, October 1st, aged 29 years.

In his death the town mourns one of her noblest sons.

When the cry of war rang through the land, he was the first man from this town to volunteer in the defense of our country. He enlisted in Co. G, 3rd Regt. Vt. Vols., sharing all its hardships and dangers for the first two years of its campaign when, his health failing, he returned to his father in this town, after being honorably discharged. Suffering for two years with that awful scourge of the army - chronic diarrhea, still his patriotism was not in the least abated; his desire all the while being that he might regain his health and return to the army and assist in completing the work he had commenced. At the last call for men, nearly one year ago he volunteered for field service that he might assist in giving the death blow to the most gigantic rebellion the world ever witnessed. He was not accepted for this duty but for the Veteran Reserve Corps. As a soldier, his officers accounted him brave and unflinching, ever ready for duty.

As a citizen, he won the respect of all who knew him, being ever ready to sacrifice his ease and comfort for the welfare of those around him. To those who are m ost heart-stricken by the loss we have all sustained, we have but little of this world’s consolation to offer. We can only sincerely, deeply, and affectionately sympathize with them in their afflicting bereavement.
