Death of George Bailey at Brightlook Hospital
Another veteran of the Civil War passed to the great beyond when the death of George Bailey, aged 82, occurred at Brightlook Hospital, Tuesday morning, the 19th, after an illness of about two months.
Mr. Bailey has for many years been a resident of the town of St. Johnsbury. Born in Richmond, P. Q., of Engish parents, he came to the United States and enlisted as a private in the 10th Vermont Volunteer infantry, July 27, 1862, serving until the close of the war. He received his discharge at a camp near Washington, June 22, 1865. While in the service he received only slight wounds, but was sunstruck, causing partial blindness which proved a handicap throughout his entire life. He was married Nov. 5, 1864, to Mary Carson, also from Canada.
Returning to civil life, they settled on a farm near St. Johnsbury Center, but later moved to Goss Hollow. Mr. Bailey had been in very good health until recently, having spent the past year with his children in their respective homes. He leaves three sons and three daughters, Mrs. Sarah Clark of Denver, Colo.; William Bailey of Glover; Orange F. Bailey of Lynn, Mass.; Margaret E. Bailey of New York city; Arthur Bailey of Nashua, N.H.; and Mrs. Nellie Palmer of St. Johnsbury.
The funeral services will be held Friday at 2 p.m., from the chapel of Grace Methodist church.
