Obituary

Major John C. Tyler, forty-three years old and only son of the late Ferdinand Tyler, died Sunday at the Vermont Asylum at Brattleboro, where he had been taken about a fortnight before. A graduate of Yale College in 1861, he entered the army as Major of the Fourth Vermont Regiment in the fall and resigned the following year, and afterward served on Gen. Baldy Smith's staff. He was selected by Grant for the Odessa consulship, but the appointment was not confirmed. He leaves a widow, a cousin of the late artist, William Hunt.
