Death of Capt. L. W. Wilson
Capt. Lucius W. Wilson died at his home in Woodstock on Saturday afternoon, after several months of sickness and severe suffering. Capt. Wilson was a native of Sherburne, born in 1846. During his boyhood his father died, following which Lucius made his home with a family in Pittsfield for a number of years. Hen in his 16th year he enlisted at Woodstock in Co. H, 7th Vt. Regiment, re-enlisted in February, 1864, and served until he was mustered out, March 14, 1866, a total of four years and six months. His regiment was stationed most of the time in Louisiana and Alabama. On the 21st of May, 1864, he was promoted to the office of corporal, and shortly before his discharge was advanced to the grade of Captain. After leaving the army Capt. Wilson went to Rutland, where he remained long enough to learn the trade of an architect. Then he went to Woodstock, and has since resided there, for some time following his trade but in later years turning his attention to other things. For a number of years he had had charge of the streets in the village corporation, by appointment of the trustees. He was always an enthusiastic G. A. R. man, and prominent in its transactions. For two years he was commander of George C. Randall Post, G. A. R. And had previously held most of the other offices in the post.
