FUNERAL OF POMEROY LOOMIS
Remains of Prominent Veteran Taken to Burlington
The body of Pomeroy Loomis arrived in Burlington on the one o'clock train from Bennington Saturday accompanied by Col. Thomas Hannon, superintendent of the Vermont Soldiers' Home at Bennington and was met at the station by the relatives, minister and bearers. The following members of Co. C, 12th Vermont of which regiment Mr. Loomis was a sergeant during the war for the Union acted as bearers: M. D. O. Thompson, Dr. W. B. Lund, William Smith, Edward Wilson, C. H. Whitney and Thomas Cooney, also Col Thomas Hannon, H. W. Allen and T. S. Peck.
The Rev. A. C. Clark curate of St. Paul's church officiated at the funeral service which was held in the mortuary chapel at Lake View cemetery. The casket was covered with flowers and draped with the United States flag. Stannard Post, No. 2, G. A. R., Charles B. Warner commander and Eli N. Peck adjutant attended in a body. The interment was in the Loomis family lot and at the close of the service at the grave taps were rendered by the trumpeter, john Smith, Company M, 1st Vermont regiment.
The many Burlington friends of Mr. Loomis will be glad to know that he was perfectly contented at the Soldiers' Home and he could never say too much in praise of the care he received from Col. and Mrs. Hannon, the superintendent and matron of that institution whose chief desire is to make the declining years of these brave men restful and happy.
