Obituary

WAS NATIVE OF VERMONT--

Manchester, N.H., April 16--Charles W. York, 71 years old, died yesterday at his home, 441 Lincoln Street, after a lingering attack of pneumonia.

He was born in Calais, Vt., the son of Mr. and Mrs. Lorenzo D. York. He enlisted at 18 years of age as a private in the United States Army, from Northfield. He served three months, and then came to New Hampshire, reenlisting at Portsmouth with Company K., First New Hampshire Heavy Artillery. He remained with the company until the end of the Civil War. He was commissioned as quartermaster Sargeant, acting as Sergeant-Major.

At the close of the Rebellion he came to Manchester and entered the employ of E. M. Slayton. Later he worked for his brother, the late Carl E. York, who conducted a grocery at Hanover and Chestnut Streets, which is now the Linton block.

Mr. York leaves one brother, George W. York, of Manchester, and two sisters, Mrs. Martha Rushlow, of this city, and Mrs. Hattie Wilson of Lakeport. He also leaves one great grandchild, Charles L. York, of Portsmouth.
