Hiram S. Hall, 84, Civil war veteran, died early this morning at the Vermont Soldiers' home, where he has been an inmate since November, 1908.

The deceased was born in Berlin, N. Y., April 14, 1839. His family moved to Vermont when he was a small child and the greater portion of his life was spent in the village of North Bennington.

On Oct. 5, 1861, he enlisted in Company G, 1st Vermont cavalry and continued in active service until the end of the war, receiving his discharge in Burlington, Nov. 1, 8164.

He was a mason by trade and for many years was actively engaged in this occupation.

He married Elizabeth Cronick of North Bennington, who died in 1910. He was a member of the Baptist church of North Bennington.

He is survived by three sons, Henry S. Hall of North Bennington, Hiram L. Hall of Bennington and Arthur Hall of Syracuse, N.Y., and one daughter, Mrs. William Meacham of Baker City, Ore.

The funeral arrangements have not as yet been made.
