Obituary

Charles S. Clogston.

Charles S. Clogston, for more than 40 years a resident of Barton, died suddenly Friday night following a stroke of apoplexy. He had been about his usual duties that evening, having delivered milk to his usual customers and the end was without notice.

Mr. Clogston was born in Orford, N.H., March 29, 1845. He married Ella G. Rice of Sutton February, 1867, and lived in Sutton 13 years, coming to Barton in 1880. In Barton he has spent many years in the Markland shops but for several years has given up active work.

Mr. Clogston was a veteran of the Civil war, serving in the Fourth Vermont regiment. He did not take an active part in public matters but was a man of kindly disposition and honest purpose, which won the respect of his acquaintances.

Besides his widow and son, C.J. Clogston, of Barton, he leaves a half sister, Nellie Langley of Auburn, N.H.

Funeral services were held from the Congregational church Monday afternoon, Rev. J.J. Hutchinson officiating and interment was in Welcome O. Brown cemetery.
