Captain Thomas R Clarke, who died on the night of Sunday, July 5th, after a prolonged and painful illness, is a man who will be widely and painfully missed in the community.
Capt. Clarke entered the service of the 1st Vermont regiment, and served as Drum Major during their three months campaign. He was afterwards very active in recruiting company E. of the 6th Vermont. and was elected Lieutenant of that company, but on their arrival on the field was detailed to the Signal Corps, and promoted to Captain, which position he held until the final closing of the rebellion.
Captain Clarke has also filled various civil offices in the town acceptably, and there are few of whose loss would be so widely felt.
