Death of C. H. Warren
Charles H. Warren of this city died this morning at the soldiers' home in Bennington, Vt., aged 59 years. He had been in poor health for years and was obliged to quit work last spring. He went to the soldiers' home three months ago and about a week ago he was prostrated by one of the attacks to which he was subject, and from which he was unable to rally. His feeble condition was known and the news of his death occasioned no surprise. He had suffered for years with a liver trouble, which with complications was the cause of his death.
Mr. Warren was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Warren and was born at Troy, N.Y. During the civil war he entered the union army as a member of a Vermont regiment band, and at the close of his term of service he came to North Adams, where he reenlisted as a member of Hodge's 10th regiment band, which served with the fourth brigade of the second division of the sixth army corps.
Since the close of the war, Mr. Warren had lived in this city, where soon after returning from the army he mar- ried Miss Margaret Bliss. He worked for some years as a traveling salesman, having been employed in that capacity by H.W. Clark & Co., of this city, wholesale grocers, a wholesale grocery firm of Albany and by a large shoe house. His last work was done in the office of the Wilkinson & Bliss shoe manufacturing company of this city, where he was employed as a bookkeeper.
Mr. Warren was a sociable and genial man, and had a large number of friends. He was a member of the Baptist church and formerly sang in its choir. He was a member of C.D. Sanford post, in whose work he always took a deep interest, and from whose gatherings he will be sadly missed. He was a kind husband and father and a good neighbor and citizen, and his death will be mourned by all who knew him. He is survived by his wife and one son, Fred Warren, who were in New York at the time of his death. He also leaves two sisters, Mrs. W.D. Bowerman and Mrs. Aaron Hardman, both of New York.
The body will be brought to this city tomorrow, escorted by a guard of honor from C.D. Sanford post. The funeral arrangements are not yet made.
