Death of Henry McCole.

In the death of Henry McCole, McIndoes loses a prominent and highly esteemed citizen. He was born in Ryegate, Dec. 26, 1842, and has lived in the town most of his life. At the breaking out of war he enlisted as private in Co. H, 4th Vt., and was wounded in the shoulder at the battle of the Wilderness, May 4, 1864; he was honorably discharged from the service as sergeant at the close of the war in July, 1865. After his return, in Nov. 1865, he married Corilla Moore who, with two children, survives him. Mr. McCole has always been an energetic and enterprising citizen, has always taken a leading position in town affairs, and was usually found on the right side of all the leading questions of the day. He has held many important offices in town, having been representative in the legislature of 1878 at the time of his death was serving a second term as selectman. In G.A.R. affairs he always took a deep interest, hardly ever failing to be present at post meetings, serving for a time as post commander. The post loses a worthy comrade and the community a good citizen.
