Aged Man and Civil War Veteran Died This Morning.
George Peake, aged 85, a Civil war veteran, passed away at 7:15 o'clock this morning at the home of his son, Charles W. Peake, of the east hill, with whom he had resided for the past 25 years. Mr. Peake sustained a fall which injured his hip a week ago while moving about on a newly-mopped floor. The shock proved to be too much and he gradually failed.
Mr. Peake was born in Orange Aug. 7. 1838, the son of Harry and Sudan Peake. A great part of his life was spent in that town, where he carried on a farm. He married Caroline Larkin, who passed away about fifty years ago. Two children were born to them, both of whom survive. They are, a son, with whom Mr., Peake lived, and a daughter, Mrs. Bertha Dundas, of Toronto, Canada. Seven grandchildren also survive to mourn his loss.
The deceased served for over a year with Co. K, First Vermont cavalry, in the Civil war.
Funeral arrangements will not be announced until word is received from his daughter.
