Obituary

KILLED - We regret to learn that Sergeant Chauncey M. Crane, of Co. F, Fifth Vermont, and brother of Capt. C. R. Crane, was killed instantly, being shot through the heart, in the terrible engagement neat Spottsylvania on Thursday last. He was one of those who came home last winter, having re-enlisted for the war. He was about 24 years of age and leaves a wife to mourn with other friends his untimely death.
