Obituary

CARPENTER --- Charles Paine Carpenter died Sunday afternoon after a weeks illness with pneumonia. He was one of the strong citizens of the town, one whose influence was always for intellectual and moral uplift of the community. He was a deacon in the North Church of which he had been a member since coming to St. Johnsbury, and a loyal member of Champlain Post G.A.R., of which he was commander in 1899. He was Postmaster for 12 years before Cleveland's first administration.

He was born in Middlesex on July 18, 1842, to Don P. and Hannah Hutchins Carpenter. In August 1862 he enlisted in Co. B., 13th Vermont, and was discharged the following July. He came to St. Johnsbury in 1864, and July 1, 1873, he was married to Mrs. Elizabeth Carpenter, who survives him, with one son Horace of Wollaston, Mass. Two of his sisters are living, Mrs. Mary Dodge. and Mrs. Martha Lee, both of Grants Pass.

The funeral was on Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the North Church Chapel. Rev. George W. C. officiating. Mr. and Mrs. Horace Carpenter and Mrs. Thomas Bishop of Brooklyn were called here by his death.
