Obituary

The Montpelier Freeman announces the death of Charles Loomis, Esq., of consumption, which event took place at the residence of Joseph A. Prentiss, Esq., on Monday evening last. Mr. Loomis was a son of the late Hon. Jeduthan Loomis, of Montpelier. He was graduated at the University of Vermont in 1849, and afterward taught several years in the south. He studied law with the late Hon. F. F. Merrill of Montpelier, practiced law in Cleveland and Cincinnati and latterly in New York city. Entered the service early as a volunteer, was promoted to a captaincy, and had a position on the staff of Gen. Stuart of Chicago, in which capacity he participated in the battles of Shiloh and Arkansas Post, and various smaller engagements. He was a young man of rare ability, and a genial, pleasant, entertaining gentleman whose death will be mourned by a large circle of friends. His health began to fail last summer, but he kept about his business until September, when the disease had made such progress that he came to his old home, in the vain hope that pure air and careful and loving attention would stay the progress of his malady. His decline has since been rapid. The deceased was classmate of Prof. Petty and Judge Shaw of this city.
