Marvin M. Mason

Orleans County Monitor, July 7, 1902
The remains of Marvin M. Mason, a former resident of this county, were brought here for burial last Wednesday. Mr. Mason was born in Craftsbury in 1839 and his early life passed in that town and in Irasburg. At the beginning of the Civil War he enlisted as a private in Company I, First Vermont Cavalry in which he was promoted to the rank of first lieutenant. At the battle of Spottsylvania he was severely wounded and was discharged but as soon as he recovered sufficiently reenlisted in the invalid corps and served in Company M until the close of war. For several years he had resided in Massachusetts. His health had been failing for some time and June 28th he was seized with an attack of neuralgia of the heart from which he was unable to obtain relief and died at his home in West Somerville in a few hours. He leaves a wife who was formerly Miss Carrie F. Colby of this town, and two sons Fred M. Mason and Harry C. Mason of West Somerville, Mass. Mr. Mason was a member of John A. Logan Post No. 186, G.A.R. of Cambridge, Mass. Brief services were held at the cemetery here Wednesday, conducted by Rev. W. C. Johnson. Six members of the Quimby Post acted as pall bearers.
