Obituary

Charles Dunton, a notice of whose death appeared in last week's St. Johnsbury Caledonian, was a veteran of the civil war. He was wounded at Cedar Creek, and has since carried a Confederate bullet in his left side from which he has suffered terribly. In addition to this a cancer has afflicted him for years. He was a member of the 11th Vermont, and served under Sheridan, receiving his wound at the time of Sheridan's famous ride to Winchester.
