Two Veterans Pass
St. Johnsbury G.A.R. Post Loses P. A. Morgan and Millen [sic] Farrow.
St. Johnsbury, Feb. 23. -- Withing a week Chamberlin post, No. 1, Grand Army of the Republic, has lost two of its members which reduces its membership to eight comrades, most of whom have joined after their own posts had surrendered their charters.
Peter A. Morgan died in Randolph, where he had been living for several years and his body will be brought to Barnet cemetery in the spring. He enlisted from West Fairlee in Company I, 17th Vermont, April 14, 1864, and was mustered out July 41, 1865.
Williamn Farrow, whose funeral will be held at his home in Peacham this afternoon with the burial in St. Johnsbury, enlisted in Company A of the 3d Vermont from Peacham, Aug. 29, 1864, and was mustered out June 27, 1865.
Charles A. Heyer of St. Johnsbury is about the only original member of Chamberlin post now living. It is believed he is the youngest Civil war veteran in Vermont as he is 84 years old and enlisted when 17 years old during the last year of the war from the town of Sutton.
