ANOTHER OLD SOLDIER DEAD
Robert F. Penniman, Who served in Two Vermont Regiments Passes Away
Robert F. Penniman, a veteran of the civil war, died at his home on Lincoln avenue at 10 o'clock this morning. Dissolution was due to the infirmities of old age. He had been in a feeble condition for a long time and since the death of his wife had failed steadily.
Mr. Penniman was a native of Vermont. He was born in Windsor 79 years ago, and made his home in the Green Mountain state for many years. Early in the Civil war he enlisted in Co. I, Sixteenth Vermont infantry, and served until 1863 when he was honorably discharged. He re-enlisted in 1863 in Co. F, Seventeenth Vermont, in which he served during the remainder of the conflict. He was not a member of the G.A.R.
He had been a resident of Illinois for 34 years. Two sons survive him.
Funeral services will be held at the house, 519 Lincoln avenue, at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon.
