GIVEN MILITARY FUNERAL.
Charles S. George Was Veteran of Civil War.
A military funeral was held yesterday at 1:30 o'clock for Charles S. George, aged Civil war veteran who passed away this week at the home of his daughter, Mrs. E.N. Rock, of South Barre. Rev. Will A. Kelley of the Universalist church officiated.
The funeral was very largely attended and there was a great profusion of floral tributes. George W. Perrin, another aged veteran from this city, attended the services, representing the G.A. R. Delegations were also present from the Sons of Veterans and the American Legion.
Bearers at the funeral were Guy, Stanley and Ralph George, Lawrence and Otto Bartlett and Howard Rock.
Following the services at the home the remains were taken to Hope cemetery for interment in the family lot. Taps were sounded over the old soldier's grave by Mario Barberi.
