Samuel C. Spaulding, the last surviving G.A.R. Comrade in Stowe, died Tuesday afternoon at his home on Main st. Comrade Spaulding had been in ill health for several months.

He was born September 4, 1844, in Malone, N.Y., and has lived in Stowe for the past 52 years. He enlisted in the Civil War July 13, 1864, and was discharged July 14, 1865, having served as Corporal in Company A, 61st New York Infantry and participated in the battles of Bull Run, Wilderness, Peach Orchard, Gaines Mills and was on the front when Lee surrendered.

Comrade Spaulding was a commander of the G.A.R. post in Stowe, as long as there were members enough to keep going.
