In the death of John Blondon, who died about seven o’clock this morning, another name must be taken from the slowly, but relentlessly diminishing list of Civil War Veterans. The final summons came to Mr. Blondon at his home, 1140 Twelfth street, after an extended illness of complications. He had been bedfast only ten days before he passed to the Great Beyond.

The deceased was born at Mechanicsburg, Md., December 18, 1845. During the war he was a member of the Co. E, 3rd Regiment, Potomac Home Brigade, Maryland. After the war he came to Portsmouth and for many years worked for the Gilbert Grocery company. Of later years he worked at his trade of carpenter.

After the death of his wife, Anna Blondon, who died February 20, 1901, Mr. Blondon had no relatives and lived alone, at the home where he passed away.

The funeral will be held at 3:30 o’clock on Friday afternoon, from Windel’s Undertaking Parlors, with burial in the soldiers’ circle in Greenlawn.
