OBITUARY

Died, at Halleck, Ill., Dec. 8, 1886, P.W. Crady, aged 55 years. Deceased was born in Champlain, N.Y.; was for a number of years a resident of St.Albans, Vt., where he married in '57 Miss Laura A. Mallory; enlisted in the 10th regiment Vt. Volunteers, August 13, 1862, in Company I, under Captain Chandler; mustered out July 1st, 1865; following his family to Halleck, Ill., where he has lived out the weary years of suffering; brought on by war's hardships, till heart and flesh failed no longer to bear the load of pain, dying for his country as much as if stricken on the field of battle by shot or shell. Mr. Crady had been postmaster at Halleck for the past 19 years; more than ordinarily loved by both old and young, with whom he came in daily contact; honored in the community he lived for the Christian patience with which he endured such long continued suffering, not lying down but once in nearly four months.

From early manhood he was a member of the M.E. church, and he was a member of the lawn Ridge Post, G.A.R. His comrades, with tender hands, bore him to his last resting place, there to sleep beside his two dear children, Romeo and Hattie, till the last tattoo shall beat the roll call for the millions of brave sons of America who have given their lives for their country.

"One more soldier beneath the sod,

One more standing before his God,

We should not weep that he has gone,

With us 'tis night, with him 'tis morn."
