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.
