Death called another heroic figure
from the fast-diminishing
ranks of Civil War veterans when,
at 9:30 o'clock last evening, Henry
Harrison Adsit of No. 104 Pleasant
street answered the summons
to join the innumerable comrades
who have passed to permanent
peace. Mr. Adsit was one of the
best known and most highly esteemed
citizens of Bradford where
he. had been a resident for fifty
years. His sturdy manhood, intense
loyalty and genial comradrie
were outstanding traits of character
which endeared him to a wide
circle of friends and those who are
left to mourn have the satisfaction
of knowing that their grief in shar-
I ed in a large degree by those who
were Mr. Adsit's intimates in many
relations of life.
Mr. Adsit was born June 22,
1841, an the town of Hanover, N.Y.,
and his boyhood was spent on
a farm at Silver Creek, N. Y. He
enlisted September 17. 1861, as a
private in Company A, 44th New
York Volunteers, for a term of
three years and was honorably
discharged from the national service
October 11, 1864. He was
justly proud of his war record
which embraced many of the most
sanguinary battles of Civil War.
He was at the siege of Yorktown,
Va., at Hanover Court House,-Gains
Mill, Malvern Hill, Chancellors-
ville, Middleburg, Gettysburg,
Rhappahannock Station, Mine Run
Spottsylvania Court House, North
Anna River, Bethesda Church and
the siege of Petersburg. He was
twice wounded, first at Malvern
Hill on July 1, 1862, and again
at the siege of Petersburg on June
19, 1864. For gallant service he
was promoted to sergeant on November
23. 1862.
Following the war Mr. Adsit
spent two years in the West Indies
for a British oil company and
then went to Rousville. He came
to Bradford in 1875 and was associated
with the Bradford Oil
company for about twenty years
before retiring from active duties.
On May 9, 1878, Mr. Adsit was
united in marriage with Miss Mary
Frances Nevins of Titusville, Pa.,
who, with one daughter Miss Grace
F. Adsit of Bradford, and one son,
J. H. Adsit of Mineral Wells, Texas,
survives; All the immediate
members of the family were present
at the time of dissolution;
Mr. Adsit was a member of the
Union Veteran Legion until that
organization was disbanded bej
cause of diminished membership
due to death. The body was prepared
for burial at Koch's mortuary
and will be removed to the
home today. Announcement of the
funeral will be made later. Friends
are requested to omit flowers.
