Civil War Veteran Dies at North Springfield Home

James Peyton Tarbell was born August 25, 1840, and died Monday, May 5, in his home at North Springfield. On August 9, 1872, he married Aliza A. Briggs. For the last 14 years his home has been in this village. He is survived by his wife and seven children: mrs. W. E. LaCount of Stockbridge, Mrs. Oscar Spafford of North Springfield, Mrs. Clara Davis of North Springfield, Glenn Peyton Tarbell of North Springfield, Mrs. Leon Allbee of Springfield, Charles Tarbell of North Springfield, and Stanley R. Tarbell of Springfield. There are in the family 7 grandchildren.

Mr. Tarbell was a Civil war veteran of the Second Battery Light Artillery Company of Vermont Volunteers. He enlisted at Woodstock and was mustered out at Burlington on July 31, 1864. Mr. Tarbell had been a farmer for the most of the time since the war and has lived in Vermont excepting a brief period spent on a farm in Nebraska. His children have been near him and last year on his birthday in August they were all together, and there were 52 of the family present.

After a lingering illness of many weeks Mr. Tarbell died Monday morning just as the sun was rising which he could see from his bedroom window and fell asleep without pain and in perfect peace. The funeral service was held in the home Wednesday at two o'clock in the afternoon with Rev. H. O. Martin in charge of the service. The burial was in the Pine Grove cemetery.
