      Taps sounded for another member of the rapidly thinning ranks of Grand Army men, on April 10, 1923, when D K Worden died at the home of his daughter, Mrs B Seth Laberee at Boyceville.

On March 2, 1864, he was married to Caroline C Ellis and in August of the same year he enlisted in the 4th Wisconsin Battery and served until the end of the Civil War.
