Rutland Daily Herald, April 20, 1923:
Milo Lyman, 84, for 70 years a resident of Rutland, died at his Chestnut avenue home at 7:30 o'clock yesterday morning as the result of a compound fracture of the right hip and other injuries sustained March 17, when he slipped on some ice and fell.
Mr. Lyman is survived by his wife and two grandchildren, Lieut. Reginald P. Lyman and Miss Mary Lyman. The funeral will be held at the house Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock.
Mr. Lyman was born in Poultney April 8, 1839. He came to Rutland when he was 14 years of age and had lived here since. He was a contractor and builder who had a hand in the building of a large part of the business section of the city as well as many residences. One of the last bits of construction work in which he engaged was the erection of the Fowler marble mill, said to be one of the largest in the world. When injured he was engaged in making plans for several residences to be built during the coming summer.
He was married at Sudbury July 29, 1863 to Mary Turner.
Mr. Lyman was a member of the old Rutland Light Guards when the first call for 75,000 men was made in 1861, and he enlisted in Company K, First Vermont regiment, going into active service for three months at Fortress Monroe. He enlisted in Company K, 12th Vermont regiment in September, 1862 and was in active service at the battle of Gettysburg. He was a charter member of Roberts post, Grand Army of the Republic, and was its commander for two terms.
