George L. Souther, a Civil war veteran, died after a brief illness Wednesday at the home of his daughter Mrs. Mark D. Shedd, 87 Pleasant Street. Mr. Souther was born in Boston 78 years ago and when the Civil war broke out enlisted in the 12th regiment Vermont volunteers. Serving until the close of the war, he then located in Winchendon, where he learned the machinist trade and was employed for many years by the Goodspeed machine works. He was twice married, first to Margana M. Baldwin, and some years after her dearth to Nancy H. Wilder, both of this town. He was a member of Gilman C. Parker post G.A.R., Murdock lodge, A.O.U.W., and Monomonack lodge, IOOF. He is survived by his daughter and one grandchild.
