Death of Robert C. Strong
The many friends of Mr. Robert C. Strong will regret to learn of his death, which occurred last evening about 10 o’clock. The event was not unexpected as he had been ill with consumption for a number of months. He was born in England, but had been a resident of this city for many years, having for a considerable time been in the employ of Wells & Richardson Co. He had also been sexton of St. Paul’s church for a number of years. At the time of his death he held the position of noble grand of Green Mountain lodge, No. 1, I. O. O. F. And chief patriarch of Green Mountain encampment, No. 3. He served in the war, having been in the Vermont cavalry. He was 46 years old and leaves a wife and daughter, who will have wide sympathy in their bereavement.
