Obituary

Source: Bennington Banner

January 16, 1862

Dead- Wm. S. Weymouth, a member of Co. A, 2nd Vt. regiment, from Peru, died recently at Washington, of dysentery and fever. It will be seen by a Card la this paper that his remains have reached his late home. We saw him in our Office a few hours before he embarked for the war and can attest to his patriotism and love of country, and we believe he cheerfully laid down his life, and forsook wife and children for the preservation of the time-honored flag. He was the first to enlist in Co. A from Peru and while he was urging others to go, he firmly declared that he should himself enlist if he had to go alone. He leaves a wife and three children to sorrow for his early departure.
