LYMAN B. KEYES
Civil War Veteran Passed Away Sunday in His 88th Year
Lyman B. Keyes, who had lived in Bennington for more than half a century, died Sunday at his home on School street in the 88th year of his age. He had been ill about two months.
The deceased was born near Jamestown, N. Y., August 23, 1830. He enlisted in the 112th regiment of New York volunteers and was in the service about 18 months, being discharged following a wound received in action
Shortly after the close of the war, he located in Bennington and resumed work at this trade, that of a carpenter. Fifty years ago this coming fall he married Adelia M. Hurt, who, with nephews and nieces living in Jamestown are the only survivors of the family
He was a conscientious workman, an upright citizen and the news of his passing will be received with regret by the older residents of the village among whom he had many close friends
The funeral which will be private because of illness in the family will be held from the house at 2:30 o'clock tomorrow afternoon. Rev. P. L. Dow, pastor of the Methodist church, will officiate and the remains will be placed in the vault at Old Bennington.
