Obituary

In Memoriam

Died at Bethel, April 14, 1920, John H. Holton, a veteran of the Civil war. Mr. Holton was born in Middlebury, Vt., May 17, 1845. When he was six years old he moved with his parents to Rochester, where he continued to reside until the breaking out of the Civil war.

Nov. 30, 1863, he enlisted as a volunteer in the 4th Reg., fought in the battle of the Wilderness and was one of the ninety survivors of that sanguinary battle to answer the roll call the next day. He continued in the service of his country during the balance of the war and was honorably discharged at Hall's Hill, Va., July 13, 1865. Returning to Rochester he continued his home there until about 1890, when he moved to Bethel where he passed the balance of his life.

His genial disposition, his kindly manner, made him many friends, and a welcome neighbor wherever he resided. He is survived by one sister, Mrs. Anabelle Hubbard of Rochester, and two nephews, Dr. Harry Hubbard of Plainfield, N. J., and Louis Hubbard of Rochester.
