Peter Dubray (Pierre Dubreuil)

Essex County Republican

Peter Dubray, French-Canadian at Chazy Lake, was of like build
as evidenced by his “fit” in coffins at the time of his decease. Dubray,
who had serve with the 91st NY. Volunteers in the civil war,
received a wound which never completely healed. He weighed 479
pounds shortly before being laid to rest. His Twelve children and 30
grandchildren had attended a family reunion shortly before that. Daring
his last illness he wept at the thought of leaving a favorite colt.
The horse was carried to his room for a last farewell.
