Obituary

Daniel H. Cross died last Friday in Denver Col. of pneumonia, aged fifty-eight years. Mr. Cross was born in Montpelier and was a son of the late Timothy Cross. When he was sixteen years old he went to Boston, and entered the jewelry store of Bigelow Brothers and Kennard, where he remained until the Civil War broke out.

He had an honorable record as a soldier, serving as lieutenant of the Fifth New Hampshire Regiment, and later colonel and aide-de-camp on the staff of General O. O. Howard.

At the close of the war he embarked on the boot and shoe business in Boston, but consumption contracted in the service forced him to go to Colorado. He was, at the time of his death, associated in the shoe business with his brother Walter. Their main store was at Denver, and had a branch store at Cripple Creek.

Mr. Cross was a man of spotless integrity, and his mourning friends in the home of his boyhood are not a few. He married a Boston lady, who died about eight years ago.
