Ceylon P. Smith

NEWS & CITIZEN: FEB. 28, 1912
Cylon P. Smith, who was admitted to the Vermont Soldiers' Home, Bennington, June, 1910, from Tennessee home at Johnson City, committed suicide Thursday afternoon by cutting his throat with a jack-knife. He had been ill with heart trouble for some time.
Smith was a native of New Hampshire, served in Co. C., Fourth Vermont as a musican. He was 75 years old. It was evident that the act was premeditated as his bank account and latest pension check had been made over to a brother in Acworth N. H.
