Civil War Veteran Died This Morning at Vermont Soldiers' Home.

Myron H. Northrup, who has been at the Soldiers' Home since Dec. 8, 1920, died there early this morning, aged 77 years, having been born Feb. 12, 1844, in Castleton. He has lived in the state the most of his life, but came to the Home from Watertown, N.Y., in a badly crippled condition, which remained to the end.

He enlisted at Ogdensburgh, N.Y., Aug. 30, 1862, in Co. K, 142d New York Inf., and was discharged June 7, 1865, by reason of the close of the war.

It would appear from his application, which is somewhat vague, that he left no family, no property and little money.

Funeral services will be held at the home tomorrow morning at ten o'clock, the chaplain, Rev. T.R. Carty officiating, with burial in the Home cemetery.
