CRAFTSBURY---The town has lost a worthy citizen, and the G. A. R. Post, a respected member, in the death of Albert Cass, which occurred Monday, March 13, after a long and painful illness. The funeral services were held at the house Wednesday afternoon, Rev. C. H. Morse, the Congregational minister officiated, being assisted by Rev. Mr. Evans of the Methodist church. The large attendance of friends, as well as Comrades of the Post, attested the esteem in which the deceased was held, and the sympathy felt for the stricken family. The remains were buried in the village cemetery.

Albert Cass was born in Greensboro in 1836. Since eleven years of age, he has been a resident of this town; his occupation was farming. During the Civil War, he served in Company I of the Vermont Cavalry. He was for many years, until the time of his death, a member of the Congregational Church of North Craftsbury, and was distinguished by uprightness of character, a spirit of helpfulness, and a charitable judgement toward others.

He leaves a widow, three sons, and three daughters, and also one brother, Lewis Cass, who is now the sole survivor of a family of 11 children.
