Hiram A. Luce
Lamoille NewsDealer: June 20, 1863
In Stowe, June 14th, at the residence of his father, Hiram A. Luce, of Co. B, 10th Regiment Vt. Vols., aged 24 years, of consumption, a disease contracted in camp. He returned home April 25th, very much emaciated, but his friends had some hope that a change of air and diet together with home association might restore him to a comfortable state of health, but it soon became evident that he was past recovery. He continued to waste away until he left this world; we trust for a better one. Although he never professed any Christianity, yet he manifested such a degree of patience and resignation, that his friends have a hope that the exchange of worlds with him will be a happy one. He never allowed a murmur of complaint to escape his lips, and said that he was ready and willing to go anytime wheb God saw fit to call for him.
