Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Lutz and family of 42 Newton street have just returned from New York, where they were called to attend the funeral of the late Edward Gilroy, who passed away at his home in Beekmantown, Nov. 25. Mr. Gilroy was a veteran of the Civil war. He volunteered in Co. F of the 6th Vermont volunteers. Mr. Gilroy was employed in Rutland at the time of the war and enlisted here. He was born in Beekmantown and was one of the oldest and most highly respected residents of Clinton county. He spent nearly his whole life in the town in which he was born, except for a few years during the Civil war, in which he fought for the defense of the flag until he was so badly wounded that he became a cripple for life. Notwithstanding the fact that he was badly handicapped by a broken leg, he took up farm work, which he continued until old age and failing health compelled him to give up active labor. Mr. Gilroy was 86 years and five months old. He is survived by his wife, who was Anna Mullen, and seven children, James of Plattsburg, N.Y., and Mrs. Andrew Lutz of Barre, William, Margaret, George and Leo of Beekmantown, and Dr. W.E. of Camp Greenleaf, Ga.
