Obituary

Truman J. Gault died suddenly in Castleton, aged 56 years, Friday night from hemorrhage of the lungs. He had been in poor health, but worked the day before, apparently feeling better than he had for some days. He was a veteran of the war and a charter member of Castleton post, G. A. R., and he was its quartermaster sergeant until failing health caused him to resign.
