Death of Two Well Known Comrades of H. H. Vaughan Post, G.A. R.
DANBY, June 12
Stephen Colvin of North Dorset, a member of H. H. Vaughan Post, G.A.R., of this place, died on Sunday last of heart disease, being apparently as well as usual the day previous. The funeral services were held on Tuesday at 1 o'clock p.mm. at the church in this place and were conducted by the post, the members attending in a body. Comrade Colvin was a member of Co. C., 11th Vt. Vols, a brave soldier, always ready for duty. Rev. Mr. Kimball officiated at the funeral and the choir rendered a few appropriate selections. He was interred in the new soldiers' lot in the Danby cemetery, it being the first interment. Comrade Colvin leaves a wife and two children to mourn his loss.
Soon after his return from the funeral of Comrade Colvin, another comrade, Exes Minett of this place, died suddenly of the same disease while partaking of supper. Comrade Minett was a member of the Skinner Post, G.A.R. of Manchester and the funeral services will be held at the Catholic church in east Dorset tomorrow in the forenoon. He was also considered a brave and meritorious soldier, having served during the war in Co. E, Second Vermont Sharpshooters. Comrade Minett leaves a wife and nine children (sons), the two older young men having worked for the past year in Proctor.
