CHARLES AND EDWARD LOVELETTE were from the town of Richford and joined Company C, September 20, 1862, after the company organization. These two boys were late in joining the company because they could not agree which should go. They were twins and both wanted to go and both wanted the other to remain at home but finally compromised by both going. They were good soldiers and did their full duty on all occasions. Charles was sent to the hospital at Brattleboro, Vt., where he was discharged March 16, 1863. Edward remained with his regiment and was mustered out July 21, 1863.

Death of C. J. Lovelette Just One Year from That of Wife.
Charles J. Lovelette, aged 65 years, died about midnight Friday evening February 22, of heart disease. Funeral services will be held at All Saints church Monday morning at 9 o'clock, the Rev. N.O.H. Dorion officiating. Members of Frontier Post No. 70, G.A.R., of which Mr. Lovelette was a member will attend in a body. Mr. Lovelette had been in poor health this winter having been confined to his bed several times in a few months, but had been able to walk out daily of late. He was out Friday afternoon until 4 o'clock, and ate his supper as usual, but became violently ill about 7:30 o'clock. A coincidence is that Mrs. Lovelette died just one year before at 10 o'clock in the evening. Mr. Lovelette was a veteran of the Civil War, having enlisted in Company G. Thirteenth Vermont Volunteers, October 10, 1862, and was discharged by reason of severe illness caused by exposure. He is survived by two sons, W.H. Lovelette, of this place, and H.W. Lovelette, of Boston; two brothers, N.H. Lovelette, of West Derby, and J. L. Lovelette, of this place; and two sisters, Mrs. Mary Cummings, of Passumpsic, and Mrs. Julia Faufaw, of this place.
