Obituary

Castleton.

Israel Hunter, 54 years old, died at his home in the east part of the town Friday last, having been ill for the past year with dropsy. Israel enlisted in the 54th colored regiment at the opening of the civil war. He was afterwards transferred to the 4e and was in several battles and had severe experience in rebel prisons and a hard tussle with yellow fever. Since the war he has resided mostly in this town. Rev. Mr. Appleman conducted religious services for him Sunday and the burial was in the Castleton cemetery.
