ANOTHER VETERAN GONE
Jasper A. Batey answers the Last Roll Call
Death came suddenly to J.A. Batey Saturday night at the home of E.C. Boyd. Saturday evening he appeared to be in as good health as usual. about four o'clock Sunday morning Mr. Boyd had occasion to be about the house, at which time he discovered Mr. Batey dead.
Mr. Batey has been a resident of Wilmington about twenty years. A few months ago he disposed of his property here and went to Malone, N. Y., where he has a sister and where he intended to make his home. The climate at that place, however, did not agree with him and physicians advised him to return to Vermont, which he did, arriving but a few days before his death.
Mr. Batey's life was long and adventurous, he having been in nearly every country in the world. He served four years in the Rebellion and at the close of the war he enlisted in the navy, where he served a long term. He had an honorable discharge from both bodies of the service. He was a man of peculiar temperament, strong in his likes and dislikes, fearless and outspoken. It is probable that many of his vitriolic remarks will long be remembered.
The funeral service was held at the home of J.H. Kidder Tuesday afternoon. A large number of the members of C.R. Lawton Post, of which Mr. Batey was a member, attended in a body and acted as a guard of honor to the remains. Interment was in River View cemetery by the side of his wife, who died a few years ago.
