The remains of Major Lyman Clark, who died in East Boston, Mass. last week, were taken to Bennington for interment. Major Clark was born in Bennington, his father being being a member of the firm of Lyman, Fenton and Co, who started the well known United States Pottery. When the pottery ceased operation, Mr. Clark went to Peoria, Ill, and engaged in the pottery work there.
Soon after the breaking out of the rebellion, he enlisted and was soon commissioned a Captain, and afterwords promoted to major, serving in the quartermaster's department, for a time having charge of the St. Louis, Mo. Station.
About 15 years ago he returned East, locating in East Boston, and since then has been in charge of the New England Pottery Company, although for two years poor health has prevented close attention to business. During the latter period he has devoted much time to a work on a glazing for pottery, which he had almost finished.
