New York Obituaries - 1864 - Gerardus Post, esq.

The bar of New York has met with a loss in the death of one of its youngest but most promising members, Gerardus Post, esq., of this city. Mr. Post graduated at Columbia College in the Class of 1862, and immediately entered the law school of the college, from which he received a diploma as Bachelor of Laws, and the prize medal for superior proficiency in legal acquirements. He was subsequently admitted to the bar, and commenced the practice of his profession in this city. He died on the outset of a career of brilliant promise, in the morning of a life devoted to a profession which would have been honored by his name. His studious nature, his finished scholarship, his high aims and love for his profession, led those who knew him to look upon him as one destined to occupy an eminent position at the bar, and deepen their sorrow for his unexpected loss.
