Israel P. Taylor

Shelton Independent, Shelton, WA, 10 Oct 1935, p. 6:

Dewatto Civil War Vet Passes At Home Sat.

Funeral services for Isreal Putnam Taylor were held in the Dewatto cemetery Tuesday afternoon with the Rev. Walter Givens of Bremerton officiating. Interment was beside the body of his only daughter, Mrs. Lee Baxter, who passed away a year ago.

Deceased was born in Arlington, Vermont May 3, 1845. He was aged 90 years, five months and two days. He enlisted in the ranks of the Civil War at the age of 19 under Captain Robert Pratt in company five, of the fifth regiment of Vermont.

Surviving "Daddy" Taylor, as deceased was called by his many friends, is a sister living in Vermont, a son Frank in Tennessee, grand sons George Roberts in Philadelphia, and Charles Taylor in Bremerton. A son-in-law, Lee Baxter remains in Dewatto.

Mr. Taylor was an exceptionally strong and healthy man, although he had been ailing for some time. He enjoyed life of a primitive sort and always had the roving disposition. He came west and settled on this coast over twenty years ago, where he made scores of friends who marked his passing last Saturday.
