Funeral of G. H. Lewis, Mexican and Civil War Veteran.

The funeral of George H. Lewis was held at his late residence Wednesday afternoon. The deceased was born in Shrewsbury, March 17, 1825, coming to this town 56 years ago, where he has since resided as a farmer. Mr. Lewis had a war record of which few can boast, having first enlisted in the Mexican War, where he served one year. When the struggle between North and South opened he enlisted in Company I, 2nd Vt. Vols., for three years and later in Hancock's corps for one year. N 1852 he married Miss Fanny Brewster of this place, who with three children, Mrs. Ida Sprague, Mrs. S. E. Kenyon and Charles Lewis, survive him.
