While he was working in the woods, Feb. 21, Peter Begor's skull was crushed by a falling limb, causing death in a few hours. Mr. Begor was a robust man, 54 years of age. He was color bearer in Co, H, 6th regiment Vermont volunteers, and was always at the front in war times not behind in times of peace, and well in the hearts of his townsmen. At Montpelier can be seen the old flag he carried, tattered, shredded and torn, but never dishonored by its bearer. The funeral was attended at the church at the Boro on Friday. Rev. Fred Skiff officiated. He was buried with Masonic honors, The attendance was very large. He leaves a wife, three sons and a daughter.
