Johnstown, August 28, 1864
On Thursday last, the remains of Lieut. Harry Crouse of Co. I, 55th P. V., were brought to his father's residence in this place. He had been killed the preceding Saturday while on the skirmish line with Grant's army. The bullet is supposed to have come from a rebel sharpshooter and pierced the brain, entering above the right eye. Lieut. Crouse had been in service nearly three years and had reenlisted. His remains were conveyed to their final resting place on Saturday, the funeral cortege numbering over one thousand persons, who thus testified their respect for the deceased and sympathy for the family.
