Calvin Carey

Birth: Nov. 30, 1846
Death: Mar. 1, 1935

The funeral for Calvin Carey, 88, the last of the commanders of "Pap" Thomas Post No. 5, G.A.R., of this city, that had in 1890 about 500 members, was held in the Christian church at 10 a.m. today.

The Rev. E.R. Moon had charge of the service and John L. Turner sang a hymn. The minister read the 16th Psalm and used the eleventh verse: "Thou wilt show me the path of life" as a text. A fine tribute was paid Comrade Carey who in his long life had followed the path of duty to his God and to his country. The words of Paul were quoted us being a fitting tribute to his life: "I have fought a good fight."

The Veterans of Foreign Wars gave their service in the church, Carl Billings and Winfield Shepherd speaking. One lone comrade of the Civil war, J. Newton Annis, was present and placed a U.S. flag on the body of his comrade. Both men were members of the Loyal Men's class of this church. Co. B of the National Guard furnished an escort for the procession that moved from the home to the church.

The burial was in Crown Hill cemetery in Indianapolis.
