HARTFORD CIVIL WAR VETERAN DIES AT 83.
Death of David Mossey Leaves One G.A.R. Survivor in Township.
Hartford, Feb. 7. – The hand of death wrote final marching orders, sending David Mossey, Civil war hero, to the Great Encampment this morning. He would have been 84 years old February 20. Only one G.A.R. veteran here survives him.
David Mossey was born in Bedford, Conn., 84 years ago, the eldest of a family of 16 children. During the Civil war he enlisted in Company B of the 3rd Vermont Infantry, campaigning throughout the war with that regiment. He lived 62 years here, working soon after the war with the old Northern railroad, cutting wood fuel for the locomotives. This work was followed by 14 years in the chair shop here.
He is survived by three brothers, William and Alex of Washington, and George, of Springfield, Mass.; six sisters, Mrs. Hattie Greenough, Highgate; Mrs. Rose Delligent, Bristol, Conn.; Mrs. Sophie Greenough, Swanton; Mrs. Relia Champagne, Holyoke, Mass.; and two others, Mary of Highgate and Nellie of Plattsburgh. Also two sons, Albert J. Mossey of Hartford and William M. Mossey of Springfield. There are also seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
