Harlan P. Hunter
Another old resident and a veteran of the Civil War has passed on and the remains were brought to the Child cemetery for interment Saturday afternoon. Harland P. Hunter, Assistant Adg't General of the William H. Bryant Relief Corps, No. 89, Auxiliary to the G.A.R., met the procession at the cemetery, where taps were sounded and the final salute given by a delegation of the American Legion from Windsor, Vt., where Mr. Hunter was residing at the time of his death. He was a former member of Co. I, 14th N.H Vols.
In another article, on the same day:
On October 7, Harlan P. Hunter, a veteran of Company I, 14th New Hampshire infantry, who had served for seventeen years as department adjutant of the Grand Army of the Republic, answered his last summons. Edmund Meacham Post was called upon for a firing squad and bugler. Since the post was unable to secure rifles, ammunition or a bugler this was impossible. Capt. Graydon Welles and nine men from Company I, came all the way from Brattleboro to pay respect which we should have and would have been proud to do had we not been prevented by circumstances beyond our control.
Let it be known that the World War Veterans of Windsor are eager and proud now and always to be of service in any way possible to the Veterans of the Civil War. - Post Correspondent.
