Obituary

Charles W. Clark died early Monday morning, at his home on Barre street, from the effects of a shock received several weeks ago. Deceased was born in Berlin. He was a son of Orrin Clark, and was fifty-eight years old. For the past forty years and more, he has resided in Montpelier. At the breaking out of the Civil War he was clerk in the old Union store. He went to the front in 1862 as quartermaster sergeant of the Eleventh Vermont Regiment, and was afterwards promoted to first lieutenant of Company G of that regiment. When Quartermaster Carlton retired, Lieutenant Clark was appointed to fill the vacancy, and served as quartermaster until mustered out in 1865. At the close of the war he worked for several years at his trade as carpenter and joiner in the Montpelier carriage shops, and subsequently was station baggage-master for the Central Vermont railroad at Montpelier until failing health compelled him to give up active work. He leaves a widow and one daughter, the wife of F. L. Peck. His funeral will be held on Tuesday afternoon, and the burial will be in the family lot in Green Mount Cemetery.
