Rutland Daily Herald, Dec. 4, 1925:

Capt. Edward M. Knox, 84, died early yesterday morning at his home on Forest street. His condition had been very low since he sustained a shock Sunday, his death being hourly expected.

Besides his wife, he is survived by six sons, Clinton M. Knox, Raymond L. Knox, Edward M. Knox, jr., and J. Donald Knox of this city; Howard M. Knox of Burlington and Carl D. Knox of East Arlington; a brother, C.F. Knox of Burlington and one grandchild.

Capt. Knox, a Civil War veteran, had been commander of Roberts post, GAR of this city and occupied the post of officer of the day at the time of his death. He was past master of a Masonic lodge in Hinesburg and had been a member of the Rutland police force.

The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon at the home at 2:30 o'clock with burial in Evergreen cemetery.
