Charles L. Paddock died at his home in Norwalk, Conn., last Sunday afternoon. He was the son of John C. Paddock, one of St. Johnsbury's old residents, and was born and brought up in this town.

He worked in the foundry at the scale shops until the war broke out, when he joined the band of the third Regiment, having as two of his companions, Frederick E. Carpenter, and the late Henry Herrick. The band was with the Third regiment through the peninsula campaign, and was discharged Aug. 9, 1862.

After the war Mr. Paddock went to Connecticut, and has resided in Norwich for the last 15 years. For 10 years he was the foreman of the foundry in the Norwich Lock works.

He was a member of the Methodist church, and a man highly respected by all. He leaves a sister, Mrs. J. N. Hastings of Waitsfield, and two brothers, in St. Johnsbury, J. A. Paddock and Harvlin Paddock. The brothers attended the funeral, which was held Tuesday afternoon.
