Boutwell of Hyde Park officiating, and the remains were placed in the tomb at Morrisville, and will be interred in Bakersfield next spring. The deceased had been confined to his bed but for a short time,and retained his faculties to a remarkable degree, considering his unusually advanced years.

He moved from Bakersfield to Wolcott about eight years ago,and had lived at the home of Mr. Scott in Elmore the past two years,being cared for in his last days by his daughter,Mrs.Mary Hamlet. He is survived by five children who were at the funeral as follows: Lewis Peo jr. of Belvidere, William Peo of Elmore, Miss Martha Bombard of Montgomery,Edward Peo of Concord, N.H., and Mrs. Mary Hamlet of Elmore.
The deceased was a veteran of the Civil War, having served two years and eight months in the 1st Vt. Cav, and was mustered out at the close of the war.
