Obituary

Joel D. Waller

Joel D. Waller, aged 69 years, who died recently at Gaysville after a lingering illness, had been a resident of West Concord, N.H., for many years. He was the first person to drive a car on the street railway line, going to the shops of the Abbott-Downing Co., where it was built. He remained with the company for a number of years.

He was for many years with the Boston & Maine railroad as car inspector at the passenger station at Concord, until failing health compelled him to retire from active work. He went to his native place where he has since resided.

He was a member of Davis Post G.A.R. He enlisted in the United States service at the age of 19 years at Stockbridge in Company C, Sixth regiment, Vermont Infantry, March 3, 1862, and took part in the battles of Lee's Mills, Williamsburg, Va., Goldens Farm, Va., Savage Station, Va., and White Oak Swamp, Va. He was discharged on account of disability October 6, 1862.
