Obituary

GOOD SOLDIER FALLEN

Died, in camp near Brandy Station, Feb. 22, corporal George Temple, company G, 10th regiment Vermont volunteers, aged 30 years, of measles. He was the only son of Caleb Temple, Esq., of Randolph, in which place the remains were brought, and there they were honored by appropriate and affecting funeral services in the congregational church, under the charge of the Rev. Royal Parkinson. Young Temple was a conscientious, honorable and estimable man, who left wife, child, friends, and the endearments and promises of a good home, from a stern sense of duty. Thought he died not in the shock of battle, his was a patriot's death. His friends rejoice also in believing that his was a Christian's death. His officers spoke of him in the highest terms as a soldier.
