Obituary

Death of Native Vermonter

W.H. Russell, who died at his home in Parsons, Kans., December 6, of Bright's disease, was born in Stowe in 1840, his parents being John and Laura (Moody) Russell, who died some years ago in Iowa, In 1861 Mr. Russell enlisted in Company H, Third Regiment Vermont Volunteers, and was in the peninsular campaign, in the battles during McClellan's retreat from Richmond, and at South mountain and Antietam. In October 1862, he was transferred to Company K, Fifth United States Cavalry, and during his service in that regiment was taken prisoner and confined in Libby prison for ten days and was on parole for five months, when he was exchanged and rejoined his regiment. He was detailed in 1865 to the band of the same regiment with which he was connected for three years until his discharge, February 5, 1867, having served five years and seven months. In 1867 he married Dolores I. Luce, of Stowe, went to Iowa about thirty-five years ago, and had since lived at various points in the West. Besides his wife, he is survived by eight children, several grandchildren, and a sister, Mrs. Sarah Ahmbright, all of whom reside in the West and South.
