Francis LaJoy, a veteran of the Civil war, died Wednesday morning at Vergennes from a complication of diseases after an illness of six months. He is survived by a wife, five sons, Francis, George and Peter C., of Vergennes, William A. of Cores, and Chester H. of Lynn, Mass., two daughters, Mrs. Cora Belfore and Miss Rose of Vergennes. Mr. LaJoy enlisted in 1861 in the 12th U.S. regular infantry and after three years' service re-enlisted in the same regiment, serving until May, 1866, when he was discharged on account of disability. He served all through the Civil war and was engaged in a number of prominent battles. He was born in Vergennes and nearly all his life has resided there. The funeral services were held at St. Peter church this morning.
