Obituary

Alexander Billings, an aged soldier of the civil war, member of Co. D, 10th Vermont Volunteers, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Louis Blodgett, on Monday, April 3rd. For several years he has been a helpless paralytic and dependent on care of Mrs. Blodgett, who has cared for him devotedly without assistance or remuneration until his final illness. He participated in the battles of the Wilderness, Cold Harbor and Petersburg Road. He contracted disease in service from which he never recovered, was taken prisoner (sic) and finally paroled. He was never pensioned though he had a claim pending for many years. He is survived by widow, a second wife, resident in Langdon, and by several children. Funeral services were held at his late home Wednesday afternoon, and burial made in the village cemetery.
