Obituary

THE RUTLAND HERALD SAYS: that Detective Allen, of Pinkerton (Chicago) Detective Agency, who was sent out for the purpose of tracking and arresting the famous Younger Brothers, desperadoes and outlaws of Southern Missouri, who was killed in an encounter with them, proves to have been Lewis J, Lull, formerly a Captain of the Chicago Police, and latterly one of Pinkerton's force.

It says Lull was born in Montpelier, Vermont, 1847, appointed to the Naval Academy, 1862, resigned to enlist in the Vermont Brigade, 1863, and joined the Chicago force 1866. He was a nephew of Commander of E. P. Lull, United States Navy. The Adjutant General records show that Lewis J. Lull enlisted March 1, 1865, in Company C, 6th Vermont Regiment, and mustered out June 26, 1865. He enlisted from Woodstock.
