Charles H. Stowe
In Baltimore, Md. Dec 14, 1864, of typhoid fever, Charles H., son of S. and U.G. Stowe, aged 19 years, three months, a member of Co. H., 2nd Vt. Tegt.
Another noble son and affectionate brother has fallen. He said to his father "My country calls, and I must go", and in Aug. 1864, with a heart swelling with true patriotism he left home and friends and all that was near and dear to him on earth and laid himself a willing sacrifice on the altar of his country. In his sickness he talked much of his friends, but his chief wish was to see his father and mother, but as that privilege was denied him, he said to his nurse, "tell them all goodbye, and to meet me in heaven". He was perfectly happy, and confident that he was going to that happy clime where sickness, sorrow, pain and death are felt and feared no more. Always kind and obedient to his parents, loving and faithful to his brothers and sisters, and a true friend, and was beloved by all who knew him. His remains were brought home and buried Jan. 13.
