George Gavin died at his home here Tuesday afternoon. He had been sick a long time. He came here from Rutland 21 years ago and took a position as head baker for I. E. Gibson and continued as such until March 27 last, when he left the shop, and since his return home on that day he has not been out of his home. He was a member of Company I, 57th Massachusetts infantry, and served a whole enlistment. He was one of the earliest members of the Sixth Corps post, G.A.R., under whose auspices the funeral will be held from St. Peter's church this afternoon at 3 o'clock. He leaves a widow and several children.
