The Auburn Bulletin


“SALISBURY – In this city, Oct. 16, 1892, David Salisbury aged 94 years. Funeral service at residence of his son, George W. Salisbury, 8 Steel St., on Tuesday, Oct. 18 at 10 AM. Crocker Post invited to attend. Burial Union Springs.”



From the Union Springs Advertiser, Thursday, October 20, 1892 (thanks to Norma Bilak, Frontenac Historical Society):


Death of a Veteran

David Salisbury, supposed to have been the oldest living member of the G.A.R., died at the home of his only son, George W. Salisbury, No. 8 Steel street, Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock.
The claim of the aged veteran seems to have been correct, as no one has disputed it. He was born January 17, 1799 in Ballston Springs, Saratoga county.
In September 1862 he enlisted from Aurora in the 160th regiment and went to the front where he made a record in many of the fiercest battles of the rebellion.
In July last he joined C. W. Crocker post, G. A. R. - Auburn Journal. The Advertiser begs to correct the Journal as to the place of enlistment, it was at Union Springs where Mr. Salisbury then resided.
