Obituary

HENRY WARBOY DIES AT HIS HOME HERE
Civil War Veteran Had Wide Acquaintance
THROUGHOUT TOWN
Was One of Three Last Local Survivors of Civil War. Past Commander of Hopkins Post.

Henry Warboy, 85, Civil War veteran and one of three surviving members of E. P. Hopkins post, Grand Army of the Republic, died this morning at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Theresa Montgomery of White Oaks road, following an extended illness. With his death Commander Rev. William R. Stocking and John Galusha are the only surviving members of Hopkins post and the last of the Civil War veterans in Williamstown.

Mr. Warboy was born in West Charleston, Vt., and had he lived until next August would have been 86 years of age. During the Civil war he served with Company E, 9th Vermont Infantry, and took part in a number of the battles of that period. As souvenirs of the war he had in his possession a Confederate flag he captured at Norfolk, Va., and a solid shot he picked up on the battle field at Fair Oaks.

For a number of years he made his home in Williamstown and enjoyed a wide acquaintance. He was active in the affairs E. P. Hopkins post, of which he was a past commander. On August 21, 1933, he was tendered a party in observance of his 83rd birthday by members of Hopkins post and was presented with a testimonial signed by all the members of the post.

He was a man of cheerful disposition held in high esteem by a host of friends and his death will be mourned by all who knew him. Since the death of his wife several years ago he had made his home with Mrs. Montgomery.

He is survived by his daughter, Mrs. Truman Montgomery and one son, George Warboy, both of Williamstown. He also leaves five grandchildren and four great grandchildren. One grandson, Lieutenant Earl Warboy, was killed in action while serving in France during the World war.

Funeral arrangements have not been completed.
