Obituary

CHESTER

- News of the death of Norman Albin Morris has been received by his relatives in this town. He died in Denver, Colorado, after an illness of only twenty-four hours. The deceased was the only child of the late Norman Morris. During the late civil war he was a member of Co. F, 1st Vt. Cavalry. In 1863 he was taken prisoner by rebel guerillas, and remained in Andersonville, that prison hell of the South, over a year. The ranks of the dead are recruited from the ranks of the living, and the soldiers of the late war are fast being mustered out on earth, and swelling the ranks of that invincible army on high, whose ruler is the Grand Commander of the Universe. Peaceful be thy slumber, friend of my youth, (in thy grave so far from kindred and friends) until the last trump shall sound, and we answer roll-call in heaven.
