In Indianapolis, Indiana, Nov. 25, 1864, HENRY HOPKINS, aged 21 years; and on the 6th March 1865, JANE, aged 29 years, only children of Isaac and Clarissa Head, of Montgomery, Vt.
Young Head entered Norwich University about eighteen months before his death and was greatly beloved by all who knew him. Upon the call of the Government for one hundred days men, he enlisted into the U.S. service in Massachusetts, with many of this class-mates. Upon the expiration of their term of enlistment, his classmates returned home and were mustered out of service. But he was too ill to return with them. He stayed a short time in Indianapolis and died. He was a young man of great promise, and his death is not only a source of great disappointment and grief to his parents, but to a large circle of relatives and friends. His remains were brought to Montgomery for interment.
