Obituary

JERRY CROTO, CIVIL WAR VETERAN, DIES
91-year-old Veteran Saw Service With Second Vermont Battery.

The death of Jerry Croto, 91 year-old veteran of the Civil war occurred at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Arthur Coveau, 36 North Elm st., yesterday afternoon.

He was born in South Hero, July 31, 1845 and came to reside with his daughter 16 years ago.

He leaves two daughters, Mrs. Coveau and Mrs. Warren Bruleigh of South Hero; three sons, Henry of South Hero, Cleveland of Burlington and Frank of Springfield, mass.; one brother, Telesphore of South Hero; seventeen grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.

At the age of nineteen, Mr. Croto in company with his father, enlisted in the Second Vermont Battery at Burlington and was sent to Louisiana. His final testimonial papers were issued July 4, 1871, and signed by Governor John W. Stewart.

Owing to the Holy Week period no service was held in St. Albans. At one thirty the body was taken to South Hero where a committal service will be conducted by the Rev. John Dwyer and a High Mass of Requiem will be sung at Holy Angels church at a date to be announced.
