Obituary

GUILFORD NATIVE CIVIL WAR VETERAN

Lucius B. Shepardson Died in California Was Sergeant of Co. F, Fourth Vermont Regiment.

Lucius B. Shepardson, 75, a native of Guilford, veteran of the Civil war and for the past 10 years a resident of Pacific Grove, Calif., died at his home in Pacific Grove Sunday, July 20, after an illness of less than two days. He had been in ill health several years, but the immediate cause of his death was apoplexy.

Mr. Shepardson was born and raised in Guilford, was a farmer and at the outbreak of the Civil war enlisted in Co. F, 4th Vermont regiment, being appointed sergeant, holding that rank until his discharge. He was mustered out at Brattleboro in September, 1863. He participated in many battles, always acquitting himself with credit.

In 1873 Mr. Shepardson and family went to California, and to Pacific Grove 10 years ago. For the past few years he had been city gardener. He was held in universal esteem and was a great reader and close student of the Bible. His wife died in 1908. He leaves five daughters, all living in the west.
