Charles Stone

The Vermont Journal, August 4, 1916

Charles Stone Passes Away

He had Lived in Windsor All His
Life He was a Civil War Veteran
and 76 Years of Age.

The death of Mr. Charles Stone which occurred on August 2, after a short illness removes from our midst a widely know and highly respected citizen.

Mr. Stone was born in Windsor on July 15, 1840, being one of the eight children of Samuel and Lucy Shattuck Stone, only two of whom (Miss Ellen Stone and Mrs. Mary Dickinson) survive him. In 1867 he married Julia Bates. Six children were born to them only one of whom, his son, Henry, is now alive. Mrs. Julia Bates Stone died in 1901 and in 1905 he married Mrs. Mary R. Breck of Claremont who survives him.

Mr. Stone's long and useful life was spent almost wholly in Windsor. He was for seventeen years superintendent on the Evarts farms, and for thirty years in the hardware business. He was a soldier in the Civil war and for fifty five years an active member of the Old South church. He was for many years vice-president and trustee in the Windsor Savings Bank where his sane counsels were of great value.

He was socially inclined and delighted to meet and mingle with his friends. He will be sadly missed at the Old South gatherings where his cheerfulness was really contagious. In all his trials, and he had his full share. He never became despondent but came out cheerfully strong in every case. When his four little children died he took other children into his life and found in their hearts much to console him for his own great loss, and his other great trials seemed only to widen his sympathy for those in trouble. He never lost his youthfulness but kept in constant touch with social and current events. He will be remembered by hosts of acquaintances and friends as an unselfish, cheerful comrade, and no man should desire or can have a more fragrant remembrance than this. A COMRADE.
