J. Newton Hosford, one of the few veterans of the Civil war still left in the town of Berlin, died yesterday at the home of his nephew, H.M. Perrin, where he had resided for 16 years. He had been in failing health for some time.

Mr. Hosford was born in Thetford Jan. 24, 1841, being the son of Jared and Abigail (Kinney) Hosford. He served in the Civil war, having enlisted in the 10th Vermont regiment, and was wounded in the battle of Lookout mountain. He was a member of Brook s post, G.A.R., in Montpelier and of the Washington County Veteran's association, being active in veterans' organizations. He also attended many national encampments. He was the last of a family of nine children.

The funeral will be held from the Berlin Corner church Saturday afternoon at 1:30, and interment will be in the village cemetery.
