WAR VETERAN DEAD
Newland Haskell, 93, Passes Away at Washington Street Home
Brattleboro, Vt., March 26 - Newland Haskell, 93, Civil war veteran and one of the two remaining members of the local Grand Army post living in town died today at his home on Washington street.
Newland Haskell was born in Wilmington March 15,1839, and nearly his whole life was spent there as a farmer after his school days and war service were over. He came to Brattleboro to live 13 years ago. He married Martha Harris in 1868 and she died in 1920. He enlisted at Wilmington, October 20, 1862, in Co. F, 16th Vermont regiment, serving nine months. He was in the ambulance corps and so did not see the service that he would have in some branches. He was however in the battle of Gettysburg. He had lived with his daughter, Mrs. Edith Plaisted. He has one other daughter, Mrs. Ernest F. Aldrich of Brattleboro and a son in Wilmington.
The funeral will be held on Tuesday.
