Death of Enoch C. Hager Occurred at the State Hospital
Enoch C. Hager, formerly of this place, Gaysville and Royalton, died Tuesday night at the state hospital in Waterbury, where he was taken recently from the Randolph sanatorium because of the mania attending Bright's disease, from which disease he had suffered for several years. He was employed many years as a stationary engineer at the Edmunds mill in Stockbridge. He was a member of Co. L, 11th Vermont regiment and was wounded at Petersburg, Va., March 27, 1865.
