CAPT. DAN. MASON
Capt. Dan Mason, of the 19th Reg't U.S. colored troops died at Brownsville, Texas, Nov. 25, 1865. He was a native of Glover, Vermont, aged about 26 years --- and a member of 6th Vt. Reg't from its organization 'till March of '64, when he was promoted to the Captaincy of the colored troops, after passing a meritorious examination before the board of which General Casey was president. He served in the Army of the Potomac 'till the surrender of Lee, when he went to Texas under Weitzel, serving there 'till his death. He passed through the whole war without a wound and almost without sickness, 'till the last sickness, which terminated his life. His friends were wholly unprepared to receive the shocking intelligence of his death, being in daily expectations of hearing he was discharged and coming home. He leaves a young wife to mourn that he is gone.
Capt. Mason was a brave, faithful, and intelligent officer., and one who who held the respect and esteem of all his friends and acquaintances --- His remains are expected home, to be interred in the land of his nativity. --- Vt. Record
