Native Vermonter Dies of Poisoning
George W. Sterling, a well known Civil War veteran and a native of Barre, where he was born in 1840, died Wednesday at his home in Dorchester, Mass., of poisoning caused by eating toadstools mistaken for mushrooms. Mr. Sterling served in the first Vermont cavalry, which had such an enviable record with the army of the Potomac, serving until the surrender at Appomattox.
