Edward Porter Warner died at the Soldiers Home in Bennington, Sunday evening. Mr. Warner was born in St.Johnsbury, November 24, 1844, the son of James M. and Helen Warner. He made his home here until he enlisted in Company K, 15th Vermont, in August '62 with rank as drummer. Discharged for disability, he enlisted later in Company G, 2nd Regiment United States Reserve Corps. He was mustered out of service upon order of Major General Dix in March 1865. In 1868, he married Cynthia Shattuck of Danville and went there to live. For several years he lived on what was then known as the Kelsey farm, and at one time he was landlord of the Elm House there. After leaving Danville, he lived in Arlington, for some time and later in and near New York city. Two years ago he went to the Soldier's Home in Bennington. Mr. Warner's two children, Marden P. Warner of Berlin, N.H., and Mrs. Alfred A. Dalber of New York city were both with his at the time of his death. Prayers were held at the Home Monday morning, and the body brought to St. Johnsbury and placed in the tomb here. Funeral services will be here at the time of the burial in the spring.
