Served as a PVT with the 1st Delaware Volunteer Infantry, Company C during the Spanish-American War.



He Was Formerly Janitor at the State Armory and Member of Militia

Richard J. Register, formerly janitor at the State Armory in this city, died yesterday on the Speakman farm at Harvey station, where he has been living with his wife. His death was sudden, and was the result of a stroke of paralysis, which, being the third attack, proved fatal. No arrangements have been made for the funeral.

Mr. Register entered the military service of the state of Delaware over twenty years ago, and rose to the grade of first sergeant in Company C. When the Spanish-American war broke out in 1898, he volunteered with other members of his company, and served as a sergeant in the First Delaware Volunteer Infantry, re-entering the Organized Militia after the regiment had been mustered out of the United States service. He was a member of the Junior Order United American Mechanics and George V. Farrell Camp, No. 1, United Spanish War Veterans.
