Veteran of the Civil War Passed Away Friday Afternoon.
Louis Labelle died at his home on Union Street Friday afternoon after a protracted illness. Death was due to Bright's disease. The deceased was born in Highgate January 19, 1848. At the opening of the Civil war, he enlisted in Company D, 2nd Vermont regiment and was later promoted to the office of corporal. He saw much active service during the struggle. After being mustered out at the close of the war he went to Hinesburg and later to Essex Junction where he worked at his trade as a carpenter for some time. He came to this town about three years ago but did not make his permanent residence here until last August.
He leaves besides his wife, one son, Edward of this town, and a daughter, Mrs. Gertrude Noble of Mechanicsville. He is also survived by two sisters, Mrs. Henry Douglass of Readsboro and Mrs. Emory Bissonettt of Hinesburg and two brothers, Moses Labelle of Waterbury and William of Hinesburg.
A prayer service will be held at the house by Rev. Frank R. Morris Monday morning at 7 o'clock. The body will be taken on the early morning train to Readsboro where the burial and funeral service will be held.
Mr. Labelle was a man of kindly disposition and well liked by his comrades.
