Death of Napoleon B. Monte, 81, a Civil War Veteran

Napoleon B. Monte, 81, for many years a resident of Montpelier, and a veteran of the Civil war, passed away about 1:45 this morning at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Edward Gill, 22 Bailey avenue, Montpelier. Mr. Monte had been in failing health since last fall, when he was struck and knocked down by an automobile. At that time he was under the care of physicians at the Heaton hospital for about two weeks.

Mr. Monte was born in Colchester March 30, 1845, and lived there during the earlier part of his life. Except for a few years spent in Roxbury after he left Colchester, Mr. Monte has lived in Montpelier most of the time during the last 40 years. For a great number of years he was caretaker for the Redstone estate owned by Prof. John W. Burgess. In the Civil war Mr. Monte enlisted as a private in the second battery of the light artillery of the Vermont volunteers August 27, 1864, and was discharged July 31, 1865, at the completion of the war. Surviving relatives are one sister, Mrs. Augusta L Ballard of Miami, Fla., and one daughter, Mrs. Edward Gill of Montpelier.

Funeral arrangements have been made for Saturday afternoon at 2:30 at the Thomas J. Guare home and entombment will be in the Green Mount cemetery. Rev. Frank J. Knapp will officiate at the service.
