The death of Jesse A.

He was buried by Post Washburne of the G.A.R. He had been a member of the New England Cavalry Regiment, which was raised partly in Rhode Island and New Hampshire, He was three times wounded and had been in Libby prison, and carried a ball with him to the grave.

Jesse A. Warren committed suicide at his home Friday morning last at five o'clock by stabbing to the heart with a pocket knife. Mr. Warren was laboring under mental derangement caused by a protracted and painful illness. It cast a sadness over this community where Mr. Warren was well known. The funeral was in charge of Washburn Post, G.A.R., Sunday, and was largely attended. His age was about 51 years.
