"Death of Noah Day, Civil War Veteran."
"Noah Day, aged 79 years, died at his home at 214 D street, early Saturday morning, death coming to him while he slept, he being found dead in his bed, the indications being that he had passed away a couple of hours before being found.
Mr. Day had been a wearer of the blue in the civil war, having been a corporal with the Ohio volunteer infantry, and Friday he headed the marching veterans as they went to scatter flowers in loving remembrance of departed comrades. There was no evidence then that the
final summons was so soon to come to the gray haired old hero, and that his last night on this earth would be to honor the memory of those with whom he had fought his country's battles.
Born on May 6th 1834, in Essex county, New York. Mr. Day had just entered the 80th year of his life.
