The Vermont Journal
Friday, November 20, 1931.
Windsor's oldest male resident, Peter Lepine (sic), died at his home on Coolidge court on Saturday, November 14.
Funeral services were held at St. Francis Catholic church on Monday, Nov. 16, with burial in the Catholic cemetery.
Mr. Lepine was a veteran to the Civil war and was a member of one of the Vermont regiments. This part of his life entitled him to a military burial service and he was given this honor by a detachment of soldiers from Company G of the Vermont National Guard and by representatives from Edmund Meacham Post of the American Legion, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War and the Windsor Boy Scout. Two old comrades-in-arms, Eugene Robinson and J. E. Rollins of Windsor attended the service.
Mr. Lepine had reached the age of 92 years having been born in Berkshire, Vt., in 1839. He enlisted for the Civil war in the present Federal building in Windsor when recruiting was going on here in the first years of the struggle between the North and South. He had lived the greater part of his life in Hartland and Windsor. He is survived by two sons, Frank of Hartland and Louis of Windsor and by one daughter, Mrs. Lora Honey of Windsor; also by several grandchildren."
