Vernam, Dallas M. (4 Aug 1844 - 12 Jan 1908)

Dallas M. Vernam passed away at his home in this city (Neillsville, Clark County) the 12th of January at the age of sixty three. He had been a great sufferer for some time, the cause of his death being a complication of diseases.

He enlisted in Co. H. 93rd Regiment of New York Vol., which was enrolled on the 10th of Nov. 1861, for three years, and was discharged the 12th day of Dec. 1862, at Philadelphia by reason of Surgeon’s Certificate for disability. He re-enlisted in Co. E. 142nd Reg. Of infantry, New York Vol., which was enrolled on the 1st day of Sept. 1864, to serve one year, and was discharged on the 14th of June 1865 at Raleigh N.C.

He was married to Miss Mary Roberts July 3rd, 1866 at Warrensburgh, N.Y. He resided in Bolton for six years, when he with his family moved west, coming to Clark Co. in the year of 1872, and has been a resident of Neillsville for twenty-five years.

He is survived by his wife and one daughter, Mrs. W.L. Newell of this city, and six grandchildren, one sister, Mrs. T. Chadwick of Christie, and one half-sister, Mrs. H. Jebo of Tuppers Lake, N.Y. The funeral was held at the home Tuesday, W.P. Burrows officiating. To the bereaved wife, daughter and her family are offered our sincere sympathy.

I am from New York State and had many Vernam ancestors from that area. You have several postings about Vernams--are you a Vernam descendant? Interested in sharing info about Vernams?

I am going through the old Clark County, Wis. Newspapers and posting obituaries and marriage notices for folks that may be interested. I am not related to the Vernams, but maybe your posting will trigger someone to respond who is.
