Obituary

On Thursday, Oct.4, Clifford H. Cook received news at his home here of the death of his father, Alvin J. Cook, 74, at his home in Ionia, Mich., Sept.26. Mr. Cook was born in Wallingford ( Vt.) March 9, 1843, and was the sixth child of a family of nine children of Nathaniel and Jemima (Sprague) Cook.

He was a veteran of the Civil War. He went west shortly after the close of the war, and had been east but once, in the summer 1904, when he attended the Grand Army encampment in Boston.
