Obituary

Civil War Veteran Passes Away at Home on Plain Street

John P. Crowley of Plain Street, a resident of Rutland for nearly his lifetime and a Civil war veteran, died yesterday morning at 2:15 o'clock at his home after an illness of about three weeks. Mr. Crowley was past commander of Roberts post, G.A. R., and on his way home from post meeting Nov. 8, 1915, he fell and broke his left leg. The fracture failed to knot and the following March it was found necessary to amputate the leg. Mr. Crowley was able to get about considerable, however, using an artificial leg and had enjoyed fairly good health until recently when a general breaking down hastened the end. Mr. Crowley died on the 50th anniversary of his marriage to Miss Delia Cavanaugh of Rutland, who lived until 25 years ago this month.

Mr. Crowley served in the Civil war with Company A, 13th Vermont volunteer infantry and was with the 2nd Vermont brigade at the Battle of Gettysburg. He enlisted August 26, 1862 and was mustered out October 21, 1863.

Born in Ireland February 2, 1943 (sic), Mr. Crowley came to Rutland at the age of five years. He was employed as section foreman for the Rutland railroad and also by the Howe Scale company. Mr. Crowley was a member of St. Peter's Hibernian Benevolent union.

The survivors are five daughters, Miss M.Kittie Crowley, Mrs. Nellie C. Crowley, Miss Nora E. Crowley, Mrs. Milton Thompson, and Miss Agnes B. Crowley, all of Rutland, a son James J. Crowley of Boston and two half sisters, Mrs. Nora Lear of Brockton Mass and Miss Mary Kelleher of Rutland. The funeral will be held tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock at the chapel of Mount St. Joseph's convent.
