Obituary

Charles R. Mead, of Hinesburgh, whose name may be found in the list of Vermonters who fell and found fitting burial place, upon the bloody field of Gettysburg, was a son of Wm. Mead, a soldier of the war of 1812, now living at Hinesburgh, and a grandson of Alpheus Mead, who was a soldier in the war of the Revolution. He was about twenty-six years of age and unmarried. One who knew him well, says of him: "With great modesty he was yet of an ardent temperament, and of an outspoken, brave, manly spirit. With singular purity of life, there was no austerity he was genial, cheerful and most agreeable as a friend and companion."
