HENRY A. HORTON
Troy, N.Y., July 2 (AP) - Henry A. Horton, one of New York's last three Civil War veterans, died last night at the age of 101.
The state's two surviving Civil War veterans are James A. Hard, 106, of Rochester and Robert Round, 103, of Ripley.
Born in Windsor, Mass., Mr. Horton enlisted at Pittsfield, Mass., on Dec. 23, 1861, five days before his fifteenth birthday.
His first service was with Company E. Thirty-first Regular Massachusetts Infantry. He later joined Company A, Second Regular Vermont Infantry at Burlington, Vt.
During his three and a half years' service, he was wounded several times, but none was serious.
After his discharge from service, he returned to Windsor and in succeeding years was employed as a carpenter and farmer there and in Pittsfield. He came to Troy in 1915.
During his residence in Pittsfield, Mr. Horton was active in the GAR, but after coming to Troy he did not transfer his membership to the New York State chapter. Mr. Hard and Mr. Round were the only two members of the G.A.R. of New York State when that organization was dissolved last month.
Mr. Horton leaves three daughters and a son, all of Troy.
