Old Protestant Cemetery, Island Pond, VT

Check the cemetery for location/directions and other veterans who may be buried there.


George Mason, a familiar figure to Island Pond the past half century, passed away very quietly Monday night, from heart failure, aged 77 years, 4 months and six days. He had been in failing health since last April, and yet within a week was about the village. He was born in Danville in 1828, came to Island Pond in 1851, and has since resided here. Two brothers survive him, Jonathan of Akron, Ohio, and Charles of Brattleboro. Funeral services were held at his late home Wednesday afternoon, conducted by Rev. C. D. Lance.
