Webmaster's Note: There is no I. T. Clark in the 15th Vermont, or any Vermont unit for that matter; there were several Clarks in the regiment, but it would be impossible, without additional information, to identify him.


Lucien White, who died recently at his home in Middlesex, served in the Civil War in Company B, 13th Vt. Vols., which won honors at “the bloody angle” at Spottsylvania. He was 64 years old and had for several years been in the employ of the Montpelier and Wells River and Central Vermont railroads in construction work.
