Gen. Horace K. Ide is Dead
Gen. Horace K. Ide of St. Johnsbury, Vt., died yesterday at Brattleboro. He was born at Barnet, Vt., Jan. 15, 1842; entered as a private in Company F, First Vermont Cavalry, and by conspicuous gallantry rose through the various grades to that of Brevet Major, May 13, 1865. He was twice taken prisoner; was twice severely wounded, and participated in forty-two engagements with his regiment, the last at Appomattox April 9, 1865. By reason of impaired health from old wounds he had lived the past seventeen winters in his Florida home, and was on his return when he died.
Gen. Ide was a prominent Republican, an ex-legislator, and a Grand Army of the Republic member. He leaves a wife and son. His father is still living. One of his brothers is Henry C. Ide, Chief Justice of Samoa.
