Lucius Veazey, a resident of this place (Windsor, Vermont) for nearly thirty years, died on Saturday morning at his home on River Street, in the 76th year of his age. He was born in Danville, P.Q., September 7, 1830, the son of Benjamin and Amanda Veasey, and became a resident of the States before the outbreak of the civil war. At the first call for men for three years, he enlisted and was mustered in as Corporal for Co. G, 5th N.H. Vols. He was severely wounded in the head at the battle of Antietam, Sept. 17, 1862, and was honorably discharged from the service, because of his wounds, April 13, 1863.
Mr. Veazey came to town in the spring of 1870, a short time after he was united in marriage, at North Charlestown, N. H., with Miss Emma F. Marshall of Claremont, by whom he is survived. He leaves also a son and daughter, Austin L. Veazey and Mrs. Ada L. Hurlburt, both living in Windsor. Funeral services were held at his late home, Monday afternoon, Rev. Mr. Locke officiating. Interment was had in Ascutney cemetery with masonic honors, Past Master Luther C. Parkhurst, of Vermont Lodge, No. 18, F. & A. M., of which the deceased was a member, reciting the burial service of the fraternity in his usual impressive manner. The funeral was largely attended, and the floral tributes were many and beautiful. Among those present were relatives from out of town, and comrades of William C. Tracy Post, G.A.R., of which Corporal Veazey was one of the few surviving members.
