Josiah Dupaw

Josiah Dupaw, up to four years ago employed as a watchman in the United States treasury in Washington, and a former selectman of Colchester, died Sunday morning at the home of his son, Oliver Dupaw, 233 North street, after an illness of hardening of the arteries of about three weeks' duration. Mr. Dupaw was born in Burlington about 78 years ago. At the outbreak of the Civil War he enlisted in Company I, Fifth Vermont Volunteer Infantry, and served in many engagements until he was shot through the neck in the Battle of Savage Station. Lying wounded on the field, he was captured by the rebels and for along time was confined to Libby prison. Later he was transferred to the rebel prison at Belle Isle, and from that place was exchanged for a rebel prisoner and was sent home. In Cleveland's administration he was appointed as a watchman in the treasury and served until 1914, when ill health compelled him to resign. He had been a resident of Colchester for quite a number of years, being a selectman and overseer of the poor at various times. He leaves a wife, Mrs. Emily Dupaw, two sons, Charles Dupaw of Washington, D. C.,, and Oliver of Burlington, and one brother, Joel f Pittsford.

The funeral will be held from the home of his son on North street Tuesday afternoon at two o'clock. The interment will be in Green Mount cemetery.
