Charles O. Bryant

Charles O. Bryant, 1117 North Church street, civil war veteran who was connected with the clothing trade in Rockford for more than a half century, died yesterday morning at 9:25 o'clock at the Swedish-American hospital.

He was born in Vermont 75 years ago and located in Rockford when a lad. He was connected with the Sam Stern clothing store for several years and entered the employ of the C. F. Henry clothing company when that concern succeeded Sam Stern. After 30 years with the C. F. Henry company, he retired when that firm closed its career. He served in the war of the rebellion with Company F, 26th N. Y. Cavalry.

His second wife died last year. He is survived by two children by his first wife, Mrs. Florence Bryant Nodine, New York City, and Chase Bryant, Los Angeles, Calif.

He was a member of G. L. Nevius post No. 1, G.A.R., and of Rockford lodge No. 102, A. F. & A. M. Funeral services will be held Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at Memorial hall, in charge of G. L. Nevius Post No. 1, G.A.R., and burial will be in Greenwood Cemetery.
