Chester Man Dies at Soldiers' Home in Bennington.

Alvah N. Learned, 71, who was very ill in the Soldiers' home in Bennington with cancerous troubles, died Sunday evening. He was for many years one of the leading farmers in Chester and owing to ill health had moved to the village. He went to the home as an inmate last April.

Mr. Learned was a member of Company I, 10th Vermont infantry, in the civil war and saw hard service. He was past commander of Henry post, G. A. R. A wife, two sons and one daughter survive. The body was taken to Fairfax Tuesday for the funeral and burial.

In his diary entry on Sept. 26, 1863, Wilbur Fisk (author of the "Hard Marching" letters) mentioned visting with his cousin Alvah Learned when their regiments were camped near each other in Virginia:

"... Found cousin Alvah Learned, and had a short visit with him. The last time I saw that fellow he was a little small boy. He is small now but larger than he was then by considerable. ..."

Their mothers were sisters.
