Obituary

LEVI W. PECK DEAD

Old Soldier Who Came to Home From Essex

Levi W. Peck, a member of the Soldiers' Home since July 12, 1918, died there Sunday morning, Nov. 20, 1921, aged 80 years, having been born in Starksboro. May 12, 1841. Although long in declining health, the end came suddenly, as he was out with his comrades only a day or two before his death.

While living in Bristol he enlisted as a substitute for Moses P. Gore of Lincoln, was assigned to Co. G, Second Vt., July 21, 1863, and was discharged for disability May 22, 1865.

Long a member of the Masonic fraternity, his conduct as the Soldiers' Home was beyond reproach, he living and dying in the Christian faith and hope.

Besides a step-son, William Randall of Essex Junction, his living children are three daughters, Mrs. L.A. Bates of Essex Center; Mrs. B.L. Orcutt of Essex Junction; Mrs. George J. Taylor of Springfield, Mass. The latter accompanied his body today to Essex Junction for burial beside his wife.
