George D. Fuller died at his home here, after a lingering illness of several months, Jan. 14. The funeral services were held at the home of his daughter, Mrs. H. H. Blake, Monday afternoon, Jan. 16. Mr. Fuller was born February 5, 1836, at Athens, Windham county. He was the eldest of seven children born to his parents, Daniel Fuller and Rhody Goodell. He enlisted at the beginning of the civil war in the 3rd Vermont regiment and served until the war closed. He was wounded twice, only by a bullet in the leg at the battle of the Wilderness, and later by a bayonet wound in the hand. He married Sarah Watson 56 years ago last August and to them were born six children, Hattie, who died at the age of 22; Henry, who died at three months; Marcia, Mrs. H. H. Blake; Ora, who died at 19 years; Nellie, Mrs. C. E. Buswell of Medford, Mass., and Charles of Medford, Mass. Besides his wife and children, he leaves two brothers and sister, William Fuller of Eudora, Kan.; Charles of Waltham, Mass., and Mrs. Mary Stevens of Hill, N. H. His funeral was largely attended by the townsmen where he had lived so long. Three clergymen officiated at the services, Rev. F. E. Davison read the scriptures, Rev. Milo Eddy offered prayer, and the funeral eulogy was delivered by Rev. W. C. Johnson. Mr. Johnson's address was peculiarly impressive and patriotic. It was brought out that Mr. Fuller was the last survivor of the Charleston post which he assisted to organize, and which he kept alive until the last man was mustered out. He presented the flag to the post at its organization, and among his last deeds was to deliver it over to the organization of the Loyal Legion to be preserved by them. The local Loyal Legion acted as honorary bearers at the obsequies, preceding the body to the local cemetery where it was finally laid to rest.
