Obituary Major J. S. DRENAN 1840-?


Hardwick (presumed Vermont)
Death of Maj. J. S. DRENAN

We regret to chronicle the death of Major J. S. DRENAN, which occurred at his home here on Sunday last. Deceased was born March 22, 1840. He enlisted at the beginning of the civil war and served for three years, making an excellent war record; for nine months he was confined in a rebel prison. After the war Major DRENAN lived at Morristown for several years, removing to Hardwick, where he had resided ever since, esteemed by his fellow citizens. He organized the G.A. R. post at Hardwick, which bears his name, and was its first commander; for four years also he was secretary and treasurer of the Vermont Association of ex-prisoners of war. The funeral was held on Wednesday under the auspices of the post, the Masonic fraternity also participating. (No date or name of paper on obit) Transcribed by Ruth Barton, 11 March 2007.
