Rutland Daily Herald, June 15, 1894
Castleton - Patrick Burns [Byrne], who had been ill for some time and was one of the old residents, died at his home on Griswold avenue Thursday. He was born in Ireland 73 years ago last March. He joined the 11th Vermont regiment in 1862, and served as color sergeant until the close of the war. He has always carried in his head a bullet, which he received while before Petersburg. He always carried the flag in all public gatherings in the village. The funeral will be held in the Catholic church Saturday morning at 9 o'clock.
