Oscar Gassett

The Vermont Journal, January 19, 1895.

Ludlow-

Oscar Gassett died at his home in this place, last Friday, after an illness of many months. Mr. Gassett was born here, July 30, 1842, and made Ludlow his home most of his life. He was a member of Co. H., 10th Vt. Vols., in the late war, and was shot through the body at Orange Grove, Va., November 27, 1863. After the war he engaged in business here, until his appointment as postal clerk in 1890, serving on the Essex Junction and Boston Route, and later on the Brattleboro and South Londonderry route. He was prominent in Grand Army and masonic circles, having been commander of O. O. Howard Post, master of Black River Lodge, F. & A. M., and district deputy grand master of Windsor County. Funeral services were held, Monday afternoon, and his remains interred with the honors of the fraternity. Deceased is survived by his wife, Isadore S. Adams, to whom he was married in 1867, and a daughter.
