James Conlin

Death of Civil War Vet
James Conlin Had Been a Resident of Rutland for 75 Years

James Conlin, a Civil War veteran and a resident of Rutland during all the years of an exceptionally long life, died at his home No. 102 South Main street at 6:30 o'clock last night of ills incidental to old age. Mr. Conlin, who was 75 years old, had been in failing health for years.

He was born in Clarendon in 1837, and had lived in Rutland since infancy. He served in the Union army in Company B of the 7th Vermont regiment, and was a member of Roberts' post, G.A.R. Until incapacitated by sickness he had been employed as a carpenter.

Mr. Conlin is survived by his wife, four daughters, Miss Mary Conlin, Mrs. Harry D. White and Miss T.A. Conlin of Rutland and Mrs. Charles Clifford of New York, and by one son, Charles H. Conlin of this city.

The funeral will be held at the Church of the Holy Innocents at 3 o'clock tomorrow afternoon.
