Obituary

MONTPELIER
Death of Aaron C. Rowell, Civil War Veteran.

Aaron C. Rowell, an 81 year old veteran of the Civil war, died at his home at 55 Northfield street at 7:30 Saturday evening, after an illness of less than a week with pneumonia. He was born Jan. 21, 1845, in Haverhill, Mass., the son of Leonard and Sarah Rowell, serving for a short time in the 8th Vermont regiment toward the close of the Civil war. He was a member of the Brooks post, G.A.R., of this city. Mr. Rowell was married nearly 50 years ago to Hattie Stevens, who survives him. He also leaves a brother, John Rowell of Burlington, and several nephews and nieces. He had carried on general farming on a place in Jones Brook for about 30 years, moving later to Wrightsville and coming to this city to reside about three years ago. The funeral was held at the Barber and Lanier funeral home at 2 o'clock this afternoon, with burial in the cemetery at Berlin Corner, Rev. W. S. Nichols, pastor of the Church of the Messiah, officiating. The bearers were H. G. Willey, Harold Willey, D. W. Gross and Fred Rowell.
