After a very short illness, some three days, Thomas Howard died last week Wednesday morning. He was 68 years old, was born in County Clair, Ireland, and had lived in St. Johnsbury 40 years. A wife and one sister survive him. The funeral was held from the Catholic church last Friday morning. Mr. Howard was a member of Chamberlin Post, and had an excellent war record. He served in the Third Vermont, and was hurt badly in the battle of Spottsylvania.
