Orrin Daley, who was the oldest veteran of the Civil War in Montpelier, died at Heaton hospital after an operation for hernia. He fell several weeks ago and broke his left hip. The deceased was born in Waterbury, March 27, 1831. He enlisted in Company F, 6th Vt. Regt., July 11, 1863. He was wounded at Winchester, Va., September 19, 1864, and was discharged because of the wound, an injury to the knee cap, which made him a cripple for the remainder of his life. September 12, 1865 he returned to Montpelier, and for many years conducted a restaurant, later a grocery business, and during the latter part of his business career was interested in insurance.
