Peter Labelle, Civil War Veteran, Dies - Would Have Been 91 July 15
Peter Labelle, the last of the Civil War veterans of Williamstown, died suddenly yesterday morning at the homeof his son, Arthur Labelle. Had he lived until July 15, he would have been 91 years old. There are only four veterans left in the vicinity of Barre, three in Barre and one in Orange. Mr. Labelle was born in Burlington July 15, 1840. He enlisted in Company C, 1st Vermont Cavalry at Burlington in 1861 and was mustered out in 1865. At the time of his death he was vice-president of Stannard Post G.A.R. of Burlington. Mr. Labelle was active up to the time of his death. His death came as a great shock to the family, especially Mrs. Labelle, who has been his companion for 65 years.
Beside his wife Laura LaBounty, he leaves one son, Arthur of Williamstown; two daughters, Mrs. A. E. Dershers of Montreal, with whom he spent his winters, and Mrs. Frank Wheaton of Montpelier and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Funeral services will be held at the Church of the Holy Family in Essex Junction at 10 o'clock Friday morning with burial in the family lot there.
