Carlos D. Williams Will Be Buried in Northfield

BURLINGTON, Dec. 17 --- Carlos D. Williams died at his home at 193 South Union Street at 10:45 o'clock yesterday morning. He had been in failing health for six months but was walking about the house up to 24 hours before his death.

Captain Williams was born in Royalton Sept. 29, 1843, son of Erastus and Charlotte Williams. He received his early education in the Royalton public schools and Northfield Academy.

During the Civil War he enlisted from Northfield with the rank of Sergeant Of Co. F. of the 12th Vermont regiment Dec. 4, 1862. He was promoted to second lieutenant in a few days, and first lieutenant on March 1863, in the same company. He was mustered out of service July 14, 1863, and returned to Northfield, where he entered the drug business.

He was appointed Captain in the State Militia after returning to Northfield and retained the title until his death. He married Miss Mary Woodbury of Northfield Dec. 8, 1869, and had two children by this marriage, Elizabeth and George, who are living in New York at the present time. His wife died May 29, 1876. He married Miss. Helen M. Thayer three years later, and had one son by that marriage, Carey P. Williams of Rosemont, Pa.

Capt. Williams came to Burlington 35 years ago and entered the employment of the Burlington Drug Company. He was a member of Stannard Post, No. 2, of the Grand Army of the Republic, and for many years served as adjutant for that post, also as adjutant of the Vermont Department of the Grand Army for three years. Since 1913 he has been recorder of Vermont Commandery Military order of the Loyal Legion, and previously served as registrar for that organization. He was a trustee of the Vermont Soldiers Home in Bennington for ten years, and a member of Washington Lodge, No. 3, F. & A. M., and a member of St. Paul's Church.

The funeral will be held at 10:30 o'clock Monday morning at St. Paul's Church, and burial will take place at Northfield the same day.
