Orleans County Monitor, March 31, 1902
Marcellus Jenks, whose sickness has been mentioned in this paper, died last Wednesday morning of heart disease. He had been in poor health for four years. For a few months he had been failing until the end came. Mr. Jenks was an old soldier, having first enlisted in Co. K first regiment N. H. Cavalry. He was born in Potton, P. Q. in 1845. For about twenty years he had been a resident of Albany, though, for a short time he had been living in this town [Barton]. The funeral was held at the house last Saturday and several from Quimby Post of this place attended. Rev. Mr. Sheaff officiated. Mr. Jenk's brother William from Morrisville was present and several other distant friends, besides the soldiers and neighbors. The body was carried to Albany where services were held and he was buried in the church yard at that place. Mr. Jenks leaves a wife, a brother and sister and several more distant friends to mourn his loss.
