Charles Connor, Civil War Veteran, Died Yesterday Afternoon.
Charles Connor, who has lived on Kent street for many years, died at his home Thursday afternoon after a long illness of breaking down of health. He was born in Plymouth May 15, 1841, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Connor, and his early life was passed in the western side of the state. He lived for some years in South Strafford and came, after the close of the war, to Montpelier to live. He was married Dec. 30, 1863, to Miss Alice Everett of Montpelier, and to them eight children were born. Of these the following survive: Mrs. Alice M. Collins of Montpelier, George E. and John Connor, Miss Agnes Connor and Mrs. Mabel L. Mackin of Montpelier. He also leaves four grandchildren. He enlisted twice in the Civil war, the first time being for nine months in the 16th Vermont regiment, and he was mustered out in 1862. He re-enlisted in December, 1863, in the 9th regiment and served until the end of the war. He was twice promoted, first to corporal, and then to sergeant, both of which were for meritorious conduct. He was also color bearer of the regiment for some months. The funeral will take place from St. Augustine's church at 9 o'clock Saturday morning.
