WAS WAGONER IN CO. E. VT. HEAVY ARTILLERY
The funeral of Charles S. Blodgett was held Monday afternoon at his residence, corner of Church and Spring streets with Rev. F. A. Poole of the South Congregational church officiating. Burial was in the Danville Green cemetery. Mr. Blodgett died Saturday morning.
He was a retired farmer, and a well known Civil War veteran, coming here from Danville a year ago last November. He had been in failing health for several years and confined to his bed since last January.
Charles S. Blodgett was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Novatus Blodgett, and was born in Hardwick January 14, 1842. He rendered valuable service to his country during the Civil War, serving three years. July 14, 1862 he enlisted at Island Pond, and was discharged June 24, 1865. Mr. Blodgett was a wagoner for Captain Edward F. Griswold, of the 1st regiment, Co. F. Vermont Heavy Artillery.
April 22, 1866, Mr. Blodgett married Miss Emma R. Sedgly of North Stratford, N. H. . and five children were born to them, two dying in early childhood. The widow, two sons and a daughter survive; S. C. Blodgett of Woodsville, N. H., Mrs Mason Whiting of Haverhill, Mass. and Harry C. Blodgett of St. Johnsbury. A sister also survives, Mrs. W. H. H. Rollins of St. Johnsbury, and five grand children.
Mr. Blodgett was a life long Vermonter and practically all the years of his long and useful life were spent on a farm in Danville. He loved the soil and the associations of his early days, and clung to the farm until illness made it advisable to be near his children. He bought a home in St. Johnsbury but retained the home in Danville Where he and Mrs. Blodgett had spent so many happy years.
Mr. and Mrs. S. C. Blodgett of Woodstock were called here Saturday by their father's death, also Mr. Whiting of Haverhill, Mass. Mrs. S. C. Cameron of Wells River, Mrs. Blaney Blodgett and Orson Blodgett of Cabot, and old friends and neighbors in Danville were here to attend the funeral. The bearers were George H. Stanton, and George N. Drew, of North Danville, and Frank N. Carr, and A. W. Taplin.
