Another worthy citizen and veteran of the Civil War has passed over to the great majority. Charles H. Perry died at the home of his brother, John A. Perry about 3 o'clock Sunday morning the 14th of a complication of diseases, the heart, lungs and kidneys having been affected for several years. Mr. Perry had been staying at his brother's about a week and had been doing some work at his house on Quarry St. On Thursday night he had symptoms of having taken cold and the following day was no better but did not wish to have a physician called. His condition on Saturday was worse and Dr. Tindall was called but the enemies of life had done their work and the end came in a few hours. Mr. Perry would have been 56 years old on the 13th of May next. He was twice enlisted in the Union army, the first time as a nine months man in the 13th Vt. , Company I, and on his discharge re-enlisted as a recruit in the 9th Vt., Company B. He was in some of the hardest fought battles of the war, including Gettysburg and the fighting before Richmond. His wife died on the 9th of last December and he lived with his brothers and sisters since that time. There are four in number Mrs. W.S.S. Buck of Randolph, Elmer Perry of barre, Mrs. Fred Whitney and John A. Perry of this town. The funeral was held this afternoon at the Congregational church at 1:30. Rev. D.H. Strong officiated. Mr. Perry was a member of William Wells Post G.A.R., and of Gilmore Camp, Sons of Veterans and was insured for $2000 in the Knights of Honor. He was a steady, industrious, kind hearted man and respected by all who knew him.
