Veteran of Civil War Passed Away Saturday
Alonzo Bent, a veteran of the Civil War, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Carrie Gallipeau, aged 76 years. He had been rapidly failing for a number of days and the end was not unexpected. Members of his family were summoned last week.
He was born in Woodford, April 24, 1841, and when a young man purchased a farm in Coleville where he had passed the larger portion of his life. He sold the farm a few years ago and moved into the village. Enlisting February 4, 1862 in the first Vermont battery, he saw two years service and more in the department of the Gulf of Mexico, being mustered out August 19, 1864.
Six children survive, Mrs. Joseph Frazer and Mrs. E.M. Brown of Thompsonville, Harry Bent of Schenectady, Mrs. Carrie Gallipeau, Mrs. Nettie Roberts and George and Alonzo Bent of Bennington.
The funeral was held at 2 o'clock this afternoon, Rev. P.L. Dow, pastor of the Methodist church, officiating and the burial was in the village cemetery.
