Obituary

Dennis George Leahy was born in Cork, Ireland, February 3, 1834, and died in East Berkshire April 29. The following facts outline in brief the life lived between these dates: The first 13 years of his life were passed in his birthplace. Then he came to America with his mother and settled in East Berkshire, where he had always made his home. In March, 1852, he married Rose M. Bashaw, and to them five children were born, the oldest daughter, dying in infancy. When the nation was plunged into Civil War, Mr. Leahy felt the call of duty and to serve the best interests of his country, he enlisted in Company C, 1st Vt. Cav., and served faithfully for two years and nine months. He is survived by his wife, three daughters and one son. The Episcopal service was conducted by the Rev. J. C. Stephenson at Mr. Leahy's home, Friday afternoon May 2, and burial was in Calvary cemetery.
