Death of a Civil War Veteran

John C. Farrell died Saturday morning at his home in Burlington of general debility. He was 64 years old and was a native of Ireland. He went to Burlington when only eleven years old and resided with his uncle, John Clark, of Shelburne road. He remained with Mr. Clark until the outbreak of the Civil War and then enlisted in the Fourteenth New York regiment. He came home on a sick furlough and after recovering was transferred to Co. G, 2nd Vt. Vols. He served with that regiment until the end of the war and then returned to Burlington.

Mr. Farrell was well known in the lumber business. At one time he was employed by the Bronson, Weston & Greene Co., and afterwards with the Bronson, Weston & Dunham Lumber Co.

He is survived by four sons and seven daughters, John J., Thomas W., and Frank of Burlington, and James R. of Hawkesburg, ONT., and the Misses Kate, Mary, Rita and Florence, Mrs. Albert Moge, and Mrs. George W. Shannon of Burlington, and Miss Jennie Farrell of Nashua, N.H.
