REMAINS OF AZRO A. PRATT BROUGHT HERE
WAS A VETERAN
The funeral of Azro A. Pratt, who died at Waterbury on Thursday, was held this forenoon from the Bethany Church in Montpelier, The Rev. R. F. Reed officiating, and the body was brought to this city to be buried beside the remains of his wife. Mr. Pratt died from a general breaking down of the system. For many years he had been an invalid and will be remembered as the old gentleman who was accustomed to drive about the city accompanied by a little dog.
Mr. Pratt was born in Plainfield and was the son of Asa Pratt. He had two brothers, and one sister, of whom died many years ago. His early life was spent in Plainfield, until 1859, when he went to Ohio, where he remained some ten years.
He came back to Vermont August 29, 1862, to receive a commission as corporal in Company C. of the 13th Vermont regiment, of which A. C. Brown was lieutenant-colonel. His company was one of those that stood behind the rail fence and repulsed the charge of Pickett's brigade on the field of Gettysburg. He was mustered out July 21, 1863. He drew a pension of $72.00 dollars a month.
On his return to Vermont he married Miss Betsey E. Miller, of East Montpelier. To them three children were born, M. A. Pratt, now of St. Louis, Mo., Rev. N. M. Pratt, of Cleveland, O., and George of Philadelphia, Pa. Mrs. Pratt died in 1888. Mr. Pratt had spent his life in this vicinity as a farmer. The funeral was held Saturday morning from the chapel of the Bethany church, and the burial was in Green Mount Cemetery.
