ORIGINAL SERGEANTS OF CO. D, 1862
No. I. Marquis F. Marrs. No. 2. Julius F. Densmore. No. 3. Henry O. Clark. No. 4. George Stevens. No. 5. William L. Blake.(Sturtevant's Pictorial History, Thirteenth Regiment, Vermont Volunteers, War of 1861-1865)
GEORGE STEVENS was born and educated in Essex. In August, 1862, he was employed as a clerk in a store in Winooski and there enlisted in Company D. He was made a sergeant, and as such, served till he was discharged in May, 1863, on account of sickness. When well, he was of a remarkably cheerful disposition, always ready to hear a tale of woe and relieve the trouble, if in his power. Full of fun his hearty laugh was recognized throughout the entire regiment, strict in the discharge of duty, he was unusually respected, he had the faculty, or a genius for cooking, and was unanimously elected cook of the sergeant's tent, and served many a meal that was voted to be equal to that prepared by some women, and superior to those by many. After leaving the army, he devoted his time to farming on the old homestead in Essex for many years, moving from there to Winooski, and now is a resident of Burlington.

The death of George Stevens occurred at a local sanitarium early yesterday morning. Mr. Stevens was a brother of the Harold Stevens and was a resident of this city for many years. After the death of his wife some six years ago he made his home with his son and daughter in New York. He came to Burlington some four months ago for treatment and has resided here since. Mr. Stevens was a man of fine character, of a very kindly nature, quiet and unassuming and loved by a large circle of friends.
He leaves two children, Harry I. Stevens and Mrs. Louise Mariner, both of New York city; also a brother William Stevens of Derby Line, and three grandchildren
Mr. Stevens was a veteran of the Civil War and was in his 80th year. Announcement of the funeral will be made later, on arrival of the son and daughter.
