AN OLD VETERAN.
Comrade L.T. Hickok Answers the Last Roll Call
Another old veteran has answered the last roll call. He died Sunday morning at his home on Wood street, aged 55 years. Comrade Hickok had been an invalid for the past seven or eight years, suffering from the effect of wounds and disease incurred in the army; and for the past three years he has been confined almost entirely to his home. He had been a resident of Dubuque for the past thirty years or more, and was a well known musician, having been a member of several musical organizations. When the war began he enlisted in Company E, 124th Illinois infantry, and served the full term of his enlistment-three years. He was a good soldier, and, as a citizen, his character was above reproach. After long years of suffering he has joined the boys on the other side-the Grand Army of the dead. He was held in the highest regard by his comrades and all others who knew him. He was a member of Hyde Clark Post, who will take charge of the funeral. His casket has been draped with the flag for which he fought.
Comrade Hickok is survived by his wife and one daughter, Mrs. Glen Lampe and two grandchildren.
