Obituary

HIGHGATE SPRINGS

Ammon McGee, a veteran of the civil war, died at his home at this place last Friday. He was born in this town Oct. 17Th, 1819 and most of his life was passed here. He was a member of Co. D, 5th Vermont and had a leg shattered at Savage Station, June 19, 1863. He was taken prisoner and his leg was amputated by a rebel surgeon. Later a second amputation was performed when he fell into Union hands. He was in many engagements and in several of the great battles, serving three years and over. Rev. S. H. Smith of Swanton, officiated and his remains were carried to their last resting place wrapped in the stars and stripes. He leaves a wife and a daughter ten years old. His son, Arthur McGee, and a grandson, of Newport, attended the funeral.
