Clifton Richmond died at his home in Pomfret Tuesday morning after a long illness, the result of several strokes of paralysis which he had suffered. He was a veteran of the late war, serving with Co. B, First regiment Vermont volunteers. Mr. Richardson was a harness maker, and for many years carried on his trade in Woodstock, where he was well known and respected by all with whom he came in contact. Twelve years ago he moved to his Pomfret farm with his son, Fred C. Richmond, where he has since resided. His wife and son survive him.
