Another Brave Soldier Gone - Many sad hearts were assembled in Wilmington on the 28th of February, to attend the funeral services of Jonas F. Ware, of Co. E, 11th Regt. Vt. Vol., who died on the 22nd in hospital at Washington, D.C., in the 23d year of his age. His father, Corydon Ware, reached the hospital a few hours after the death of his loyal son. "And they took the body of Jonas, brought it to his native town and buried it in the tomb of his fathers."
Our hearts bleed over the death of such noble youth, who die in the service of their country; while we revere the loyalty, and patriotism by which they are moved to make the sacrifice.

FROM THE 11TH REGIMENTLamoille Newsdealer, March 30, 1864
Mortality of the 1st Vermont Artillery, from the 1st of September, 1862 to the 13th of March,
MR. EDITOR -- Below is a record of all the deaths that have occurred since the time above stated, with the exception of a few cases of varioloid, which have not been sent to us from General Hospital as yet. I will give their names and age, with the disease, and the date of their death.
Jonas R. Ware, Battery E., aged 21, of typhoid pneumonia -- sent home Feb. 21st., 1863.
The above is a true record of all that have died in our hospital, as before stated, making in all ninety-three cases in one year and a half. Perhaps some may think this is a pretty large amount of sickness and death in so short of time; and it seems that thus it is. I have been connected with the hospital department all the time, with an exception of a few weeks. We have things very convenient at present, so that the sick are, and can be well taken care of, and I think they do have all done for them that can be for the place.
