Obituary

Essex Jct. ---The funeral of Lucius M. Booth, who died Sunday morning at the home of his daughter, Mrs. W. S. Fletcher, took place Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock from her home in the village.

Lucius M. Booth was the son of Samuel C. and Eunice Woodworth Booth, and was born in Essex in 1841. He received his education in the common school and academy in his native town.

He enlisted with the 6th Vermonters in 1861, and later saw service with Company F of the 13th Vermont Volunteer Infantry; was appointed Corporal, and promoted to First Sergeant. He saw active service through the entire Gettysburg Campaign.

Since he was mustered out in 1863, to the present time, he had followed the lumber business.

He is survived by his wife, Jennie Hand Booth, his daughter, Carrie Fletcher, of this village, and his sons, William H. Booth, of Cherry Valley, Ill., and Roy H. Booth, of Buffalo, new York, and four grandchildren.
