The funeral of James Dower, who died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. C. E. Crowley, Wednesday night, was held at Essex Junction Saturday morning at nine o’clock with burial at Richmond. Mr. Dower was 87 years of age and had lived with Mrs., Crowley since the death of his wife 26 years ago. He was a veteran of the Civil War, having enlisted in the ninth regiment, Vermont Volunteers, and was a prisoner in both Libby and Andersonville prisons, which so impaired his health that he never regained it.
