What does " dis. " Mean?

What does " dis. " Mean?

I'm just starting working with our family tree, and I have a bunch of papers from when my grandpa was working on it. One is a copy of a page from a book. At the top it says, "Georgia, Vermont, Vital Records." The page has a listing of last names, with entries underneath using first names. Such as:

Chloe, b. Nov. 30, 1802; V1 & V2

Obviously, "b." is born, "m." is married, and "d." is died. I assume "V1" is Volume 1.

But then I have a couple like this:

Horace, dis. Jan 11, 1824; CC

What does "dis." mean? I'm not sure what CC is either. The date lies between birth and death.

dis. could be "discharged" (from the military)

Were they all men? Were they old enough to have been discharged from the military?

Does CC only show up once? If so, it could be Company Commander.
