Benjamin Bloss was born in Chautauqua County, New York March 21, 1820 at the age of 26 he came West locating at Galens, Illinois and for several years worked in the lead mines, tiring of mining he came to Wisconsin and for over thirty years has been a resident of Walworth County during the war of 1861 and '65 he served as private in Company H, 13th Reg. Wis. Vol. after three years of hard active service and the closing of the war, he was honorably discharged, returning to his home a mere wreck of his former self, having contracted by reason of exposure the disease that has at last proved fatal. Soon after coming home he joined the O.A.R. and for the last five years has been Chaplain of A. Lincoln Post No. 3 of Darien, as such officer he was always to be found on duty ready to preform any work assigned to him and by his death the Post has lost one of its most active member. The service were held at the house Saturday at three o'clock and conducted by A. Lincoln Post No. 2 assisted by a delegation of comrades from Delavan, Rev. C. A. Hobbs preaching the funeral sermon and at the grave in the beautiful and impressive service of the O.A.R. He leaves a wife and two daughters to mourn his sudden death, but thus it is that one by one the old comrades are passing away and joining the Great Grand Army above.
