Cyrus Bowers, a much respected citizen died Sunday evening as the result of a general break down incident to the infirmities of old age. He was in his 80th year. He and his mother moved here from Crown Point, N.Y., about 25 years ago having purchased the farm then belonging to the late Norman Allen and on which he has since resided. He was a good neighbor, a warm friend and his house was ever open to those who sought his company. He was a veteran of the Civil War having enlisted under Capt. Solon Eaton at Vergennes, from West Addison in 1862. He belonged to Co. K, 2nd reg't volunteers, 6th army corps and was under Col. Whiting. He was made a corporal, and went through the peninsular campaign. He was wounded at St. Mary's Heights, near Fredericksburgh, in May 1863. He was mustered out at Burlington in 1864. The funeral was held at his late residence at 10:30 Wednesday. The Rev. S. H. Myers officiated. The casket was draped with the American flag and there were lovely flowers from the neighbors and friends. The burial was in the Eaton cemetery in West Addison. The bearers were Warren and Millard Norton, Elbert Stagg and Arthur Vanderhoof.
