Obituary

VETERAN DEAD.
A Member of Company H, Third Regiment, Vermont Volunteers, Gone.

Antoine Provost, a veteran of the Civil war, died at his home on Convent square Saturday morning at three o'clock, after a long-time illness. He had been in feeble health for several years, but was not taken with his final illness until a few weeks ago. The funeral will be held from St. Joseph's Church tomorrow morning at nine o'clock.

Mr. Provost was born in St. Pie, P. Q., January 25, 1830, and was therefore 75 years old. He removed to this city several years ago. He is survived by a wife, three sons, Eugene Provost and William Provost of this city and Deforest Provost of New Bedford, Mass. He also leaves three daughters, Mrs. Jacob Maynard and Ms. Thomas Kane of Burlington and Mrs. Lessor of New Bedford, Mass. When the war broke out, Mr. Provost enlisted in Co. H, 3rd regiment, Vermont Volunteers, and served as a private until the close. He was a man with many friends, and will be missed by a large number of associates. Interment will be in Mount Calvary cemetery.
