Civil War Veteran, 95, Dies at Dumont, N.J.; Funeral at Castleton
CASTLETON, Jan. 5. – Word of the death yesterday at Dumont, N.J., of Creighton B. French, 95, a Civil war veteran and for many years a summer resident of Castleton, has come to friends here.
Funeral services will be held at the C.B. French home in Castleton Sunday at 2:30 p.m. There will be military rites, conducted by the American Legion.
Mr. French, for many years a cabinet maker in Brooklyn, had made his home here during his retirement until failing health required him to live with a son.
Survivors are the son, Charles French of Dumont, N.J.; two grandsons, Robert M. French of Lynbrook, L.I., and Creighton of Dumont, N.J.; a great-grandson, Robert of Lynbrook.
By virtue of his Civil war service, Mr. French was a member of Grant's G.A.R. at New York. He also belonged to the Masonic lodge.
