CHARLES SCOTT DEAD
Veteran of the Civil War Passed Away This Morning
Charles Haskell Scott, a veteran of the Civil War who had resided in Bennington during the past 16 years, died at his home on South street early this morning. He had lived in failing health for some time but was on the street the latter part of the week.
The deceased was a native of Pawlet and was in his 73rd year. He saw three years service in the Civil War with Company C of the Fifth Vermont regiment of volunteers. His occupation has been that of a farmer. A man of excellent character, quiet and unassuming, he had a large number of friends in the community, particularly among the older residents, who will learn of his death with sincere regret.
Surviving are a widow, one brother, John C. Scott, of Bennington, one sister, Mrs. Albert Botaforti of Manchester Center, five daughters, Mrs. Clarence Curtis of Manchester, Mrs. Joseph Lyons, Mary, Helen and Jennie Scott of Bennington, and one son, John C. Scott of this village.
The funeral, which will be private, will be held from the house Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. P. L. Dow, pastor of the Methodist church, will officiate and the remains will be placed in the vault at the Park Lawn cemetery. There will be an opportunity for friends to view the remains Saturday afternoon.
