Charles Richard Hazen, Civil war veteran and member of Post 56, G. A. R., died Saturday last at his home, 61 Oxford street. He was born in Hartford, Vermont, March 4, 1833, son of Reuben and Parthenia Hazen, both of whom were natives of Hartford. He was the youngest, and the only one remaining, of thirteen children. In July, 1861, he assisted in forming Co. F, 19th Massachusetts regiment, and joined an first sergeant. He was severely wounded at the battle of Balls Bluff, Virginia, and brought home on a stretcher to die. Careful nursing brought partial recovery from disability, and he was made military courier between Washington and Harrisburg, Pa. After serving two years and nine months he was discharged for total disability on April 10th, 1864. On that day he met for the first time Fannie H. Titus, who was an army nurse in the service of the Columbian hospital at Washington. They were married at her home in Vershire, Vermont, August 5th. 1866, and had four children. Besides his wife he is survived by two children, a daughter, Mrs. Alma H. Young, of Royal avenue, and E. Roscoe Hazen, of Oxford street. In early life Mr. Hazen was a ship builder, but was obliged to retire from active business, and has been a confirmed invalid for forty-five years. He had a shock of paralysis two years ago, and again a year later. He attended Memorial day services of Post 56, May, 1915, and August 28th, 1915, attended his regimental reunion at Haverhill, going by automobile. Funeral services were conducted on Tuesday, at 2.30, at his late residence, by Rev. Elmer A. Leslie, of Epworth M. E. church. Leroy Ricker, senior vice commander of Camp 56, sang "Across the Bar" and "Abide With Me." This was followed by services conducted by officers and members of Post 56, G. A. R., assisted by members of Camps 14 and 56, S. of V. Commander Fred T. Waugh, of Camp 14, played cornet solos, opening with reveille and closing with taps. There were delegations from the 19th Massachusetts infantry and Corps 2, W. R. C. The pallbearers were the following members of the Sons of Veterans: Leroy S Ricker, E. W. Powell, E. A. Sherman, Fred T. Waugh, J. F. McMakin and Fred T. Foye. Interment was in the family lot in Cambridge cemetery.
