Lemuel N. Woods, an old veteran of the civil war, died at the Soldiers' Home at Bennington, March 1, at the age of 88 years. Mr. Woods went to the home 11 years ago. He enlisted in Company C, 8th VT. Vol., and served 18 months, at which time the war closed. He received an honorable discharge and returned to his home to work on his farm. He remained there for many years. He had five children, four boys and one girl. His daughter Ella and son Henry died there a good many years ago. His wife's health failed and she passed away. This broke up his home and 11 years ago he went to the soldiers' home. He made visits to his sons and friends and always spoke in the highest terms of the home and was very happy there. He was taken sick Sunday, Feb. 27, and died Tuesday, March 1. Quietly, and peacefully like a brave soldier he passed from this plant into the great beyond. He leaves three sons, Edward of Walden, Frank of Peacham and Seth of Harvey, and several grand-children and many friends. The body was brought here and the funeral was held Friday morning in the church, Rev. G. W. Douglas officiating. The interment was at Passumpsic.
