Obituary:
AMOS CROUNSE DEAD:CIVIL WAR VETERAN
Amos Crounse, Civil war veteran and government employe,(sic) died Monday in this city. He was eighty-three years old, and had lived here since the war.
Mr. Crounse was born in Otsego County, New York, February 23, 1836. He became the owner of a farm in that state at the age of twenty-six, and busied himself in its affairs up to the time of the war. When the call came for volunteers he left the farm and enlisted in the 152nd Regiment of New York Volunteers, September 6, 1862. He later became corporal of company I.
Several times he was selected to act as a recruiting officer in the vicinity of his home. Shortly after his return from the last one of these trips, he was wounded in the battle of Prospect Hill, May 31, 1864, necessitating the amputation of his left hand. He was honorably discharged from the service on account of his disability January 20, 1865.
The remainder of his life was spent in the civil service of the government. He was employed in the Capitol, the patent office and later was transferred to the Treasury Department at the request of Francis E. Spinner, then Secretary of that department. He remained there for forty-two years, when he resigned because of his advanced years.
Surviving him are seven children, grandchildren and several great grandchildren. Funeral services were held yesterday afternoon at 1 o'clock at the church of the Ascension. Rev. J. Henning Neims officiated. Interment was in Arlington National Cemetery with military honors.
