OBITUARY—CHARLES D. KLINE.
In this village, at 8 o'clock this morning, Charles D. Kline, aged 35 years and 9 months.—Seneca Falls Reveille, January 7, 1876.
So it is, one by one are the defenders of the Union passing from among us.Slowly, but surely, are the ranks of our country's heroes being wasted and decimated until, alas! none will remain of all that noble host, to tell
the tale of suffering and struggle, to maintain and perpetuate the Union of States, and the life of the Republic. Comrade Kline, at the outbreak of the rebellion, was a native of Louisburgh, Pennsylvania, where his
parents now reside. Being young and patriotic, found him among the first to respond to the Nation's call for aid,he joined Company E, 51st Pennsylvania Infantry as a private,September 6th, 1861, with which organization he served as a faithful soldier and genial comrade until discharged at Knoxville, Tennessee, two years thereafter, being unfitted for further service by disease, contracted in the discharge of duty. Shortly after, he took up his residence at Seneca Falls, where he has resided up to the time of his death. The high esteem in which the deceased was held by his fellow soldiers, is well expressed by the
following resolutions adopted January 17, 1876, by Cross Post G. A. R., at Seneca Falls, of which organization he has been a most earnest and devoted member for the past seven years.
Mustered into service on February 22,1864 as a Private in Company E. 51st Pennsylvania Infantry,Wounded during the war,Mustered out with Company on July 27,1865.Cause of death was heart disease and dropsy.
