Joseph Leno

Joseph Leno, a veteran of the Civil War and a resident of Ipswich for 32 years, passed away on Thursday evening, November 2, at his home on Locust street. Mr. Leno had been ill more than a year and for the last three months of his life was confined to his bed. His death resulted from tuberculosis. A great sufferer during the last months he was calm and patient, looking forward is the only relief that could come to him with hoe and longing. Mr. Leno was well known in Ipswich where he had been so many years an industrious and hard working citizen. He was born in East Middlebury, Vt., August 12, 1846, and was among the very youngest members of the local Post of the G.A.R. He was married twice and was the father of 18 children, 13 of whome are still living. His first marriage took place in Rutland Vt, his second in Ipswich where he leaves a widow and a large family of children. Of the 13 children living three are sons and ten daughters.

Mr. Leno served during the Civil War in a well known Vermont regiment from which he received honorable discharge. Funeral services were held from St. Joseph's church on Sunday afternoon, Gen. James Appleton Post attending in a body. The Interment was at Locust Grove Cemetery.
