Death of George Scagel

The following from the Burlington Free Press will be of interest to St. Albans people as George Scagel was formerly a resident of this city:

"George Scagel died yesterday at his residence at 28 Shelburne st., of appendicitis. He was in his 75th year, having been born in Stanbridge, Que., November 24m, 1837. He was a veteran of the Civil War, serving four years in Company A, 5th regiment volunteers. Most of his life was passed in St. Albans. He was a member there of the Universalist church and of Franklin Lodge, No. 4, of Masons. He had lived in this city with his family for the past seven years. Beside his wife, he is survived by one daughter and two sons, Miss Amelia Scagel and Arthur, of St. Albans, and George, of Boston. The funeral was held this afternoon at 3 o'clock at the house, and the remains will be taken to St. Albans on the 10 o'clock train Sunday morning. Immediately upon arrival burial will take place there, with the Masons in charge."
