William Connor, who was found dead in a room at Seville Hotel, Boston, April 30th, had an honorable war record having served for the entire period of the Civil War with the 7th and 17th Vermont regiments. Connor had for several years been an inmate of the Soldiers' Home at Bennington and only left that institution n furlough the day before his sudden death on Boston. Col. John J. Warden of the Adams House, as Vermont's official representative, being attached to the staff of Governor Woodbury, received telegraphic instructions from Col. R.J. Coffey, of the home at Bennington, to forward the remains to that place at the expense of the state of Vermont. Col. Warden at once made the necessary arrangements and the body was shipped.
