William L. G. Whitney

Members of Co. K, 9th Vermont, from Dummerston
(Gibson Collection)

Vermont Phoenix, February 3, 1865

At the Field Hospital, near Petersburg, Va., Dec. 2nd, William L. G. Whitney, aged 21 years; also Dec. 11th, George T. Whitney, aged 24 years; both members of Co. K, 9th Vt. Vols., and sons and only children of Mrs. Sarah C. Whitney of West Dummerston, Vt.

The deceased were young men of irreproachable moral character, modest and unassuming manners, fine literary tastes and unbounded patriotism-and their death has made a sad breach in the community in which they moved.
