Obituary

The Funeral of Thomas McCullough, of this place, private of the 1st Vt. Cavalry, killed by the accidental discharge of his revolver at Edenburgh, Va., took place Wednesday with military honors. The procession left his father's house about eleven o'clock, a company of the recruits for the Vt. Regiments, under the command of Capt. Lonergan, acting as escort. The National Colors, furled and draped in mourning, was carried at the head of the column and an American flag was used as a pall on the coffin. The procession passed through Church street and on to the Catholic Church, St. Mary's, where the funeral services took place.
