"Mr. Calvin Monroe died in the Boone county infirmary last Saturday of heart disease, aged about 70 years. He was an old soldier, having served in Co. C, Seventh Indiana. The Society of Company C sent Undertaker Harris to Burlington Sunday morning and had the remains brought here for burial beside his wife who died several years ago, the Society bearing all the expense. Mr. Monroe drew a pension for a long while, but for some reason was dropped from the rolls. Recently he was re-instated and would have drawn a pension in February had he lived."
