From the Rutland Daily Herald, Jan. 25, 1892:
Castleton - Rev. Levi H. Stone died in this village Sunday morning after an illness extending from last Monday, when he attended to his usual home duties. He was the second of a family of 10 children, and was born in Cabot December 10, 1806. Of the seven sons four were Congregational clergyman in Vermont. Of the 10 children four of them survive Mr. Stone. His father, Col. John Stone, a farmer, was unable to give his children the educational advantages that he desired, and Mr. Stone never had school advantages, his education being got entirely by home study and in the district schools. He was for several years in his younger days teacher of district schools and also singing schools. He early took up the temperance cause, and even before he was 21 years old spoke upon the subject. After he came here to live he was for some time agent of the Vermont State Temperance society. In 1831 he experienced religion in his native town and united with the church there. In 1836 he was ordained as its pastor, remaining as such nine years. He was afterward pastor of the Congregational church in Glover 10 years, in Waitsfield one year, Northfield eight years, his last pastorate being in Pawlet, where he was settled five years. He had lived in this village 21 years. In 1849 the honorary degree of A.M. was conferred upon him by Middlebury college. Mr. Stone went out as chaplain of the 1st Vermont regiment, and about a year ago was granted a pension. His seven sons and two daughters survive him. The funeral will be held at the Congregational church Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. C.F. Stone of Laconia, N.H., arrived here at an early hour Sunday morning, about 10 minutes after his father died.
