Obituary

Frederick Moore--Civil War Veteran
Dies at Home Here This Evening.
Frederick Moore, a Civil War veteran, died this morning at his home, 311 Pleasant Street, following a long illness. The deceased was a native of Bennington, was in his 79th year, and was the son of the late David and Emily Moore.

He enlisted in Company A. of the 14th regiment of Vermont volunteers, recruited in the towns of Bennington, Woodford, and Pownal, and of whom there are but two survivors now living in Bennington, E. Payson Hathaway, and George Harwood.

In 1873 he married Elizabeth Howard, and shortly afterward they moved to Wilmington, where they lived for 36 years. Six years ago they returned to Bennington, and took up their residence at the home where he passed away. Mr. Moore was one time employed as a knitter at the Bradford mill, but during the larger portion of his life he followed the trade of carpenter.

The immediate family of survivors are a widow, one daughter, Mrs. I. G. Pierce, of Jacksonville, one brother, David E. Moore, of Bennington, two grandchildren, and one great grandchild.

The deceased was an industrious mechanic, an excellent citizen, and was highly respected in the community which will learn of his death with regret. The funeral will be held at the chapel of the First Baptist church Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The pastor, Rev. G. Towart, will officiate.
