Obituary

The death of George Sprout, aged 68 years, late of Co. H, 9th regiment Vt. Vols., occurred at the poor farm last week. He contracted infirmities in the service, which entitled him to a pension, though he made no effort to secure one. He was buried by the G.A. Post in River Bank Cemetery. The Post had made effort to secure for him a place in the Soldiers' Home, but was advised that the places were full and he could not be taken, hence a pauper's rest awaited him.
