Charles L. Mason of No. 25 Park avenue, a veteran of the Civil war, died at the Rutland hospital yesterday morning at 4.30 o'clock after a two weeks' illness with pneumonia.
Mr. Mason was born in Rutland May 23, 1844, and had always lived here. He was a painter by trade. When the war broke out he enlisted in 1861 in the 1st Vermont volunteers as a drummer boy. Later he enlisted in the 5th Massachusetts and also served out two other enlistments with Vermont troops, enlisting each time as a drummer boy or musician. His only near surviving relative is a sister, Mrs. Sarah M. Pope of Waltham, Mass.
The funeral will be held at the house this afternoon at 2 o'clock, the services to be in charge of Roberts post, G.A.R., of which he was a member.
