Death of Otis Park.

The death of Otis Park in Brattleboro causes local symphathy as he resided here for the most of his life and made many friends. His aged parents, Mr. and Mrs. Elihu Park, and his youngest brother still reside in this village. Of the family Charles, of Williamsville, was born in Brooklyn, Otis in Putney, Oscar, of Chicago, in Brattleboro and Walter B. here. Otis lived here from the age of four or five till he enlisted at 20 in Company I, 8th Vermont regiment. He was present at the taking of Richmond and New Orleans and was also in Shenandoah and other battles. After being in a New Orleans hospital for nine months his discharge was procured in November, 1863, by his physician who believed he could not live long in that climate, but being spunky and very patriotic he reenlisted in December, 1861, and served through the war. His brother Oscar also served the whole period in the 8th. Otis married Miss Delia Wilson of Dummerston and again made his home in Newfane where his children, Tracy and Annie, were born. He moved to Brattleboro about six years ago.
