LIEUT. CHARLES ALBR0
Remains of Former Resident Buried at Old Bennington Today
The remains of the late Lieut. Charles Albro, who died at his home at Glens Falls Wednesday, were brought here today for burial at the Old Bennington cemetery. He was a former resident of Bennington and a brother of the late George Albro of this village.
August 27, 1862, he was commissioned second lieutenant of company A, 14th Vermont volunteers, and with his company took part in the battle of Gettysburg the following July, the only important engagement in which the regiment was engaged.
All three commissioned officers and 63 of the non-commissioned officers and privates out of the 85 men who made up the company were residents of Bennington at the time of enlistment but there are less than half a dozen living in this village today. The company was almost completely recruited from the towns of Bennington, Pownal and Woodford.
Lieut. Albro was made a Mason at an earlier date than any living member of the Mount Anthony lodge.
So far as known there are living today in Bennington but four survivors of Lieut. Albro's company, Capt. R.O. Gore, Corp. E. Payson Hathaway, George H. Harwood and Fred More.
Two daughters and two grandsons accompanied the remains from Glens Falls this forenoon. Because of prostration over the death of her husband, the widow was unable to make the journey.
