Obituary

DOUBLY A VETERAN

HUNTINGTON, April 5---The funeral for George H. Lewis was held at his late residence Wednesday afternoon. The deceased was born in Shrewsbury, March 17, 1825, coming to this town 56 years ago, where he has since resided as a farmer.

Mr. Lewis had a war record of what few can beat, having first enlisting in the Mexican War, where he served a year. When the struggle between the North and the South opened he enlisted in Company I, 2d Vermont Volunteers for three years, and later in Hancock's Corps for one year.

In 1852 he married Miss Fanny Brewster of this place, who, with three children, Mrs. Ida Sprague, Mrs. R. E. Kenyon, and Charles Lewis survive him.
