Biography

DANIEL N. FRENCH enlisted from Waterbury. He was a great, muscular, kind-hearted, jolly fellow, a friend to everybody and always ready to help any who needed help. He was a good soldier and a general favorite with all the boys. He returned to Waterbury and followed various callings. He died about twenty years ago.

Obituary

The anticipated death of Daniel French occurred on Sat. (May 6). Consumption had long preyed upon him. The funeral services were held on Monday, PM, Rev. Mr. Fuller officiating.

Mr. French received information from Washington, a few days since, that he had been allowed a pension of $18 per month, with back pay amounting to about $2200, but death called him away before he came into the possession of so welcome a boon.
