Obituary

WHAT A VERMONT BOY DID---Young Morrill, a drummer of the Indiana 13th, today killed a rebel officer, in company with another on the Gordonsville road to Richmond, and captured both their horses, and accoutrements, among which were a fine field glass, a fine silver silver mounted rifle, and a fine pair of silver plated spurs, all which are now in camp.

--War correspondence of the Indiana State Journal. The lad above alluded to is a son of Dr. Lewis Morrill, and was born in Newport, this state. His mother was Lucy, daughter of Alvin Flint, formerly of this town. The boy is not yet 17 years old (sic).
