Obituary

BETHEL
Alba Dartt, 82, Died Tuesday – Last Charter Member of G.A.R. Post.

Alba Dartt, aged 82 years, a well-known Civil war veteran, died yesterday morning at his home, afterr a few days' illness with grip. The case was nearly helpless from the first because the patient had been in a weak condition several months following a fall, and a previous rheumatic condition. The funeral will be held tomorrow at his ate home, his pastor, Rev. J. Wesley Miller, officiating, with interment at “Lympus” cemetery.

The deceased was a native of Weathersfield, where he was born June 2, 1844, his parents being the late Nathaniel and Ruth A. (Perkins) Dartt of that town. He married on March 24, 1867, almost sixty years ago, Harriet Howe, who survives him, with a son, George Dartt, of Springfield, two daughters, Mrs. Leonard Abbott of Springfield and Miss Kate Dartt of Bethel; four grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Miss Thelma Bradbury of Watertown, Mass., was brought up in the family and is in spirit a daughter.

Mr. Dartt was the only surviving member of Daniel Lillie Post, No. 41, G.A.R., having served in the 16th and 10th Vermont regiment, having enlisted in the former in September, 1862, and in the latter soon after his discharge by expiration of his original enlistment, his service continuing till the close of the war.

Mr. Dartt spent practically his whole life since the war in this town and was a much respected citizen, and for many years a member of the “Lympus church. His wife is quite ill with grip.
