Worcester, Jan. 14. -- Charles C. Tewksbury died at 8:15 this morning at his home here. His death was due to breaking down, incidental to old age. He was confined to his bed only a little more than a week.

Charles C. Tewksbury was born in Calais October 12, 1841, and spent his early years there. On March 17, 1866, he married in Calais Miss Kimetia R. Newton. They moved to Worcester about 1869 and have lived here ever since.

On August 12, 1862, Mr. Tewksbury enlisted in Company C. He was made corporal of the company. On August 13, 1864, after his discharge, he reinlisted (sic) in Company 1 (sic), 1st Artillery regiment of Vermont, and was discharged in June, 1865.

Mr. Tewksbury has served the town in practically every office. He was known as a faithful and efficient town treasurer for 33 years, justice of the peace for an even longer period, and represented the town in the Legislature in 1894. He was known as a loyal citizen and good neighbor, a devoted husband and father. In his passing, the town loses one of its oldest and most respected citizens.

He was an active member of the Hall Post, G.A.R., in Worcester, as long as the post existed, and to the last retained his interest in Civil War matters. There are now only three Civil War veterans remaining in Worcester, Captain John R. Wilson, Calvin W. Richardson and Frank J. Taylor.

Mr. Tewksbury was a member of Aurora Lodge, F. & A. M.

Mr. Tewksbury is survived by a son, Lee C. Tewksbury, and a daughter, Mrs. H. D. Hutchinson, both of Montpelier. They were with him during his last illness. He is survived, also by five grandchildren, Mrs. Margaret Hadley and Mrs. Clifton B. Austin of Hartford, Conn., Paul C. Tewksbury of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Harold T. Hutchinson of Montpelier and Howard Hutchinson of Springfield, Mass.; also by two great-grandchildren. Two brothers survive him, Frank T. Tewksbury of Worcester and O. F. Tewksbury of Kenewick, Washington.

The funeral services will be held Sunday at 2 o'clock in the afternoon at the home in Worcester and burial will be in the Worcester cemetery.
