Austin A. Harris

LAMOILLE NEWSDEALER: DECEMBER 6, 1861

The Cavalry Regiment is still in Burlington, and it is not known when they will leave. It is thought by some that they will spend the winter there. The measles have been in camp, and nearlly all who have not previously had them, have been attacked. We hear of but one death, Austin A. Harris, of Vernon, a member of Company F. He died from congestion of the lungs following measles. His remains were conveyed to the Rutland cars next morning for conveyance to his home, eight of his comrades acting as pall bearers, and accompanied by the entire regiment. At the depot a prayer was offered and a few remarks made by Chaplain Woodward.
