Obituary

Aged Civil War Man Dies at St. Johnsbury

St. Johnsbury, Sept. 6. - Taps sounded Monday afternoon at 1 o'clock for Commander Winthrop T. Reed of Chamberlin post, No. 1, Grand Army of the Republic, and his death leaves only four remaining members of what is today the largest post in Vermont. Had he lived until Oct. 5 he would have been 94 years old and he had been in good health in his later years though with failing eyesight.

Mr. Reed was born in Kirby and enlisted in the third battery, light artillery, on Aug. 24, 1864, and was honorably discharged June 15, 1865. He returned to his Kirby farm for a few years and later moved to Concord village with his family. For the past 19 years, he has lived in this town. His wife died 18 years ago and he is survived by two daughters, Winifred M., wife of George A. Maker, and Iva R., wife of Fred F. Pierce, both of St. Johnsbury. Several grandchildren are also living.
