HAD FINE WAR RECORD
Thomas Sheridan Passes Away After Short Illness of Neuralgia of Heart. Another Civil War veteran passed away Memorial Day, Thomas Sheridan dying late yesterday afternoon at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Patrick F. McBride, 5 Ridge street. Mr. Sheridan had been ill a week with neuralgia of the heart and was thought to be improved Monday but the intense heat is thought to have hastened the end.
Thomas Sheridan was born in Ireland 72 years ago the 6th of last December, son of Daniel and Ann Clyne Sheridan. At the age of five came to Pawlet, this State and passed his childhood there. Later he lived in Arlington and Dorset and at the age of 27 married Mary Hayes of Ireland who died seven years ago. Seven children were born to them, two dying in infancy. Mr. Sheridan is survived by four children, Mrs. Matthew Brady of New York, Miss Margaret Sheridan of New York, Mrs. P. F. McBride and Thomas Sheridan of this city. He is survived also by seven grandchildren, one brother, Martin of Dorset, and two sisters, Mrs. John Sweeney of Dorset and Mrs. James Clyne of Rutland.
Six years ago Mr. Sheridan came here to make his home with his daughter and had since lived here. He was a member of Brooks Post, G. A. R., and of the Catholic church, a man of frugal, kindly disposition, who was held in highest esteem.
Mr. Sheridan had a long record in the Civil War, first enlisting among the nine months' men from Arlington. He enlisted in the 14th Vermont Infantry in August, 1862, and was mustered out July 30, 1863. He enlisted in the First Vermont Battery December 24, 1863, and was transferred to the Second Battery July 12, 1864, and was promoted to the rank of corporal October 11, 1864. He was mustered out July 31, 1865.
Funeral services will occur at St. Augustine's church Thursday morning with burial in East Dorset.
