Daniel E. Barrett
St. Albans Daily Messenger
August 3, 1907
War Veteran of the Civil War
Capt. Daniel E. Barrett died Friday in the Providence Hospital in Washington where he had been under treatment since April of last year. The ultimate cause of death was paralysis, which was superinduced by a street car accident in Washington several years ago.
Captain Barrett was the son of Daniel Barrett of Middlebury and enlisted when 17 years old with the first regiment of Vermont troops that went into service in the Civil War. He served all through the war, being successively promoted from private of Company B, 5th Vt. Inf., to corporal and sergeant. After being wounded October 15, 1864, following a re-enlistment Barrett was promoted to a first lieutenancy in Company K and was mustered out as captain June 29, 1865. He was a captain when 23 years old, after having passed through all the intermediate grades and having been constantly promoted for meritorious service.
There are a number of Middlebury men who were in Captain Barrett's regiment and some who were in different companies.
Captain Barrett is survived by two sisters in Middlebury, Mrs. Ellen Champagne, who is a soldier's widow, and Miss Margaret Barrett.
In accordance with a frequently expressed wish Captain Barrett's body will be placed in the national soldiers' cemetery at Arlington, Va.
