Remarkable Devotion of Twins
The life of Horace W. Moody, who died recently at his home at Castleton corners, was a notable one in many ways. He was twin brother to Henry w. Moody and they were born at Walpole, N.H., August 12, 1838. Thanksgiving day forty-one years ago these brothers married sisters, Horace wedding Angie Ross and Henry marrying Miss Maria Ross. The girls were the daughters of William Ross.
Horace and Henry Moody enlisted on the same day at the same time for the Civil War, becoming members of Company A, 11th Vt. Regt. They were the same height and weight and both served three years. Twenty-two years ago the brothers united with the Advent church at Castleton. They worked together nearly always, and their affection for each other was instanced in many ways. Two years ago Henry had a severe illness but recovered, and the brothers since had been more closely in sympathy than ever until parted by the death of Horace.
