General Robery Nugent died at his home, 332 McDonough street, yesterday, as the final result of a bullet wound in the stomach received at the battle of Fredericksburg, De- cember 13, 1862, while leading his command up Marye's Hill. For seventeen years he suffered from chronic dyspepsia. General Nugent was born in Killkeel, County Down, Ireland, July 24, 1824, and came to New York when a young man. He joined the Seventh Regiment as a private and afterward was a captain in the Fourteenth Regiment. In 1853 he became a member of the Sixty-ninth Regiment, New York State Militia, and rose to the colonelcy before the beginning of the Civil War. At the firing on Fort Sumter he led the regiment to Virginia. On it return he helped organize the Sixty-ninth New York Volunteers, which was the first in Meagher's Irish Brigade. He served as colonel of the regiment until 1862, when, General Meagher becoming incapacitated, he succeeded to the command of the Irish Brigade. It was while leading this charge that he received the wound that finally caused his death. He was carried from the field and brevetted for his bravery. During his convalescence in New York he was appointed deputy provost mar- shal of New York and Brooklyn, serving as such from May to November, 1863. During that time the draft riots took place. He returned to the Army, reaching the rank of brigadier general. At the close of the war he became a captain in the regular Army and commanded a company in many battles in Montana, Dakota, and Wyoming, against the Sioux and other Indians, being with Gen- eral Miles in the battles against Sitting Bull. In 1877 he was retired as major and returned to Brooklyn to live. His wife, three daugh- ters and a son survive him. The funeral services will be held at his late home, 332 McDonough street, on Sunday af- ternoon at 5:30 o'clock. They will be con- ducted by the Rev. Charles W. King. Lafay- ette Post, G.A.R., of New York, will hold the military services immediately after the conclusion of the religious exercises. The interment will be on Monday, in the National Cemetery, Cypress Hills, where General Nu- gent expressed a wish to be buried just be- fore he died.
