Kirk P. Brown, a veteran of the Civil War, died at his home in Methuen, Mass. . He was a native of Cambridge, Vt., having been born there in 1842. When the war broke out he was 19 years old, and enlisted in Co. A., 8th Vermont Volunteers, going South immediately. In September, 1862, his company participated in the battle of Winchester, Va., and at that time Mr. Brown was wounded in the left thigh. For months he lay in a church hospital. As a result of the wound he had since been crippled. He was able to leave the hospital about the time the war came to a close, in 1865, and received an honorable discharge. At the time of Mr. Brown's death his wife was also seriously ill.
