DEATH OF WELL KNOWN PENSION AGENT; NATIVE OF WINDHAM
Frederick Mack, a well-known pension agent throughout Vermont, died Tuesday in Washington, D.C., from Bright's disease. He had been in poor health since last fall, but his condition not considered dangerous until a few weeks ago.
Mr. Mack was born in Windham Nov. 22, 1835, the youngest of 14 children of James and Sally (Kellogg) Mack. His youth was spent in his native town. He was a graduate of St. Johnsbury Academy.
He was in Minnesota at the breaking out of the war, and served in a regiment from that state, which was stationed at Fort Abercrombie, Dakota, during the Indian raids.
He spent several years in Windham after the war, but for the past 27 years lived in Washington. He was employed in the pension department about 15 years and gave up that position to open a pension office. At the time of his death, he was one of the leading pension agents of the country, and he handled the claims of many Vermont veterans.
He was a 32d degree Mason, a member of Sons of the Revolution, and the Grand Army.
Mr. Mack was married in October 1855, to Miss Amanda C. Burroughs, of Alstead, N. H., who survives him, with two children. Nellie M. and A. H. Mack, both of Washington. He also leaves two brothers and two sisters; James R., of Hammond, Minn., A. H. Mack, of Windham, Mrs. Abby Kendall of Windham, and Mrs. Jennette Burdette, of Minneapolis.
The funeral was held at Washington yesterday, and the burial will be in Windham, tomorrow.
