SIMEON H. CORBETT DEAD
LONGTIME RESIDENT OF BENNINGTON PASSED AWAY MONDAY EVENING
Simeon H. Corbett died suddenly of heart failure at his home on Jefferson Avenue at 7 o'clock Monday evening. Mr. Corbett had worked as usual during the day and did not seem to be any way in poor health. After eating he went out to the piazza, but had been there but a short time when he fell from his chair dead, before anyone reached him.
Simeon H. Corbett was born in White Creek, and was educated in the schools there. At the outbreak of the Civil War he enlisted at the age of 17, and served for three years in Company G. of the 93d New York regiment. He was in many of the important battles of the war, and was wounded at the battle of the Wilderness, his life being saved by one of the brass buttons on his coat. Mr. Corbett was honorably discharged from the army November 24, 1864.
In 1867, Mr. Corbett married Josephine Bennett of White Creek, who survives him. Throughout his life he was the kindest of husbands and a most loving father. Mr. Corbett came to Bennington in 1868 where he followed the trade of mason.
Besides his wife, those who survive him are Edwin E. Corbett, his only son, now living in Bennington; Mrs. M. S. Childs of Manchester, and Mrs. F. W. Filson, of Bennington, his two daughters; George Corbett, of South Omaha, Neb., brother of Simeon; Mrs. J. J. Nevile of Bennington, a sister of Mr. Corbett, and Harold B. Child, T. Everett Corbett, grandchildren of the deceased.
The funeral will be held at the home on Jefferson Avenue Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The funeral will be in charge of the G.A.R. members, and a G.A.R. Service will be held at the grave. The Rev. P. L. Day will officiate.
