Obituary

W. D. Livingston, One of Last 5 Ludlow G.A.R. Survivors, Dies

TWENTY MILE STEAM, April 12. - William Dickinson Livingston, 83, of Ludlow and one of the last five members of O. O. Howard post, Grand army of the Republic, died at about 11 o'clock this morning of cerebral hemorrhage at the home of James Green on Twenty Mile Stream, where, with his daughter, Miss Miriam Livingston, he had spent the winter.

Mr. Livingston had been in failing health several years but had been about the house Saturday. He was taken suddenly ill Sunday morning and lapsed into unconsciousness from which he never rallied.

He was born April 18, 1848, in Weathersfield, son of William and Flora (Dickinson) Livingston. On March 3, 1869, he married Miss Carrie J. Roys of Plymouth and to them were born six children, Will, Walter, Miriam, Bryon, Pearl and Blanche, all of whom survive with 13 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Pearl is now Mrs. William Chapman of Ludlow and Blanche is Mrs. John Day of Springfield.

Mr. Livingston enlisted in Company C, 7th Vermont regiment, in Weathersfield September 8, 1864, and was mustered out July 14, 1865. He joined the Grand Army in 1871, probably as a charter member of O. O. Howard post.

Until about a year ago Mr. Livingston carried on the Livingston farm on North hill, where he lived 51 years, the family being prominent in the life of the community.

Funeral services will be held tomorrow afternoon at 1 o'clock at the Congregational church in Ludlow with Rev. E. G. French, the pastor officiating.
