CIVIL WAR VETERAN DEAD

Daniel Sullivan, Who had Been at Home Here Since August 1916

Daniel Sullivan died at the Vermont soldiers' home Friday morning, Sept. 17 of a complication of diseases which finally caused senile dementia.

He was born in La Colle, P.Q., Aug. 10, 1843; came to the home Aug. 1, 1916, and had been a member since, though absent at various times. His occupation during most of life was that of a printer and as such he had traveled and worked in most sections of Canada and the United States, - in fact, he was what is commonly called a "tramp printer." During his life here he was a rapid pedestrian and was fond of exploring the region around Bennington. Though regarded as somewhat eccentric, he was generally well liked by his comrades.

He enlisted for one year from the town of Westfield in Co. K, First Vt. Cavalry, but was transferred to Co. C, Oct. 11, 1864, and was mustered out August 9, 1865.

He leaves a wife, now residing in Florence, Mass., but it is not known that he had any living relatives. The disposition of his remains has not yet been finally determined, but he will probably be buried in the Home cemetery.
