Barre's Last Civil War Veteran Dead
Allen E. Cutts, Native of Orange, Died This Morning At Age of 87 Years.

Allen E. Cutts, the last Civil War veteran residing in Barre, passed away this morning at 9 o'clock at the home of his daughter, Mrs. John H. Johnson at 21 Church street. He had been in poor health for several years but had been confined to his bed for only five weeks.

Mr. Cutts was born in Orange on October 16, 1845, the son of Lewis and Martha ( Peabody) Cutts. He was only a boy when the Civil war broke out, but he was imbued with the spirit of patriotism and adventure and ran away from home to join the army. Though under age he enlisted from Barre on Aug. 8,1864, and became a member of Company E of the 9th Vermont regiment. He served in many of the big battles of the war, being wounded at Chapin's Farm, Va., on Sept. 29,1864. Once he was struck in the leg and at another time a bullet struck his hand, crippling one finger so that it was twisted for the remainder of his life. He served throughout the war and was mustered out June 13 1865, returning to his home in Orange where he started learning the trade of carpenter.

When he was 24 years of age Mr. Cutts came to Barre and was united in marriage here with Olive E. Johnson. The couple made their home here, Mr. Cutts following his trade as long as his health permitted. Thirteen years ago he went to Boston, Mass., to reside with relatives, returning to Barre about 7 years ago. As long as he was active he was a member of the carpenter's union in this city and belonged to the Grand Army post until it was dissolved by the death of its members.

Surviving him is one sister, Mrs. W. E. Bradford of Park street. He also leaves two daughters, Mrs. Johnson and Mrs. Orla Gregware, both of Barre. A son, Burton N. Cutts, passed away 17 years ago. He leaves also six grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Funeral services are to be held on Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Johnson home at 21 Church street and burial will be made in Elmwood cemetery.
