Obituary

It is with sorrow we announce the death of brother William Lamb of Camp 57, Poultney, oldest member of the order. Although he was a member of the Grand Army, and other organizations, yet he always took much interest in the Sons of Veterans, and was a regular attendant at camp meetings. He was over 70 years of age.
