LAMOILLE NEWSDEALER: JUNE 22, 1863
On Wednesday of last week Captain L.D. Tice, now of Company K, 5th Vt., but formerly of Company D, arrived in this village with the body of Daniel Woodward, a member of Co. D, who enlisted as a recruit in September 1862. Young Woodward was a son of Mrs. James Boyes, by a former husband. He was a member of the ambulance corps and at the time of his death, which occured on Monday the 7th inst, was detailed with several others to procure brick from an old building for the purpose of building fire-places in the division hospital. While at work the walls of the building caved in, killing Woodward and a man by the name of Edgar Garfield, of the 3rd Vermont, from East Boston. Several others were at work in and around the building but only two were seriously hurt. The funds for paying the expenses of bringing home the body were raised principally by subscription among the members of the regiment, and amounted to 65 or 70 dollars.
