from the Rutland Daily Herald, Dec. 24, 1908:
Joseph St. Peter, who is said to be the oldest Grand Army veteran in this city, died yesterday afternoon at 1.30 o'clock at his home on River street. Death was caused by gangrene, from which he had suffered for some time past.
He was born March 16, 1812, in Paris, France, and came to this country when a young man. When he was 50 years of age he enlisted in company D, 7th Vermont regiment and served for four years, a large part of the time being in the South under Gen. Butler.
He had been married three times, the last time being about a year ago to Mrs. Cecilia Hare. He is survived by four children, 20 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren. The funeral will be held Saturday.
