Charles Dunn, aged 83, a veteran of the civil war, died Monday night at his home on the Pownal road. The family survivors are a widow and a son and two daughters by a previous marriage. The funeral will be held from the house at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon and the members of the local Grand Army post will meet at their headquarters at 1:30 for the purpose of attending the service. The death of Mr. Dunn leaves J. A. N. Williams as the last survivor living in Bennington of Company A, Second Vermont regiment which was recruited from Bennington and nearby towns. When the company was raised the women of Bennington presented it with a silk flag. The flag was never carried into action but was preserved and is now kept at the post rooms.
It will be carried at Mr. Dunn's funeral tomorrow according to the custom that has prevailed whenever a member of the company passes away. The flag made its last appearance upon the death of Col. J.H. Walbridge, who was the first captain of the company and who later became colonel of the regiment.
