Obituary

The Vermont Journal, November 11, 1910

The body of George L. Bates, formerly a resident of Windsor, was brought here on Wednesday, November 2, from the Soldiers home at Togus, Me, where he died April 28, 1909. Burial was in Ascutney Cemetery. The deceased enlisted in the 4th Vermont regiment and served out his enlistment in the Civil War. Mr. Bates married Helen Dudley, a native of Windsor. She has been dead many years. His body was buried at her side. Old residents here appear to know little of the life of Mr. Bates subsequent to his leaving these parts about forty years ago.

Additional notes from Cathy: He was admitted to the Soldiers Home in Togus, Maine April 17, 1909 and died April 28, 1909. He was buried there and his body was later exhumed and brought first to Manchester, NH where his widow, Hattie, and son Kimball lived and then to Windsor. George was born in Hartland, Vermont April 1840 to Dustin and Betsy Latimer (Sabine) Bates. His first wife Helen was 28 years old when she died of typhoid fever in February of 1870, leaving him with two young children, Laura and Kimball. He married again, to Hattie and they had a daughter, Nellie.
