Suicide in West Ferrisburgh
Our Vergennes correspondent writes: "The death of Mr. James Gregory, early Thursday morning of last week, at his home in West Ferrisburgh, was a shock to the community where he has always lived. Early Thursday morning he went out, Mrs. Gregory [Ruth Newton] thought, to milk the cows, and, not returning, she went out to search for him. She found his lifeless body near the barn yard, with the top of his head entirely blown off, and a discharged gun by his side. She did not hear the gun, but there were those who did. By some it is thought his death was accidental, but others think it was a case of self-destruction. He frequently took the gun, a double-barrel shot gun, when he went out in the morning, to shoot birds and squirrels. Mr. Gregory was a volunteer in the late war, and was a member of Co. I. 14th Vermont, and was promoted to sergeant. He was about 54 years old and leaves a wife. He was a kind-hearted neighbor, industrious and much respected. He never received a pension, although justly entitled to one. The funeral, Friday, was largely attended."
