Obituary

Death of George W. Clark

Wrapped in the American flag, the body of George W. Clark was brought here from Togus, Me., where death occurred at the National Soldiers' Home. Burial was in the Moulton cemetery where at 2 o'clock Monday afternoon the Women's Relief corps gave their ritual service and prayer was offered by Rev. F. Wilson Day. There were friends of the deceased and a few G.A.R. veterans in attendance at the service.

The G.A.R. records bear witness that George W. Clark was born in Eagle Bridge, N.Y., Jan. 1,1845. He enlisted at Randolph, Vt. Sept. 28, 1861, and was mustered into the service Oct. 29, 1861, as a private in Co. A, 3rd Regiment Vt. Volunteer Infantry. His first battle was Lee's Mills, Va., April 16, 1862, and he was in 22 subsequent engagements. At the battle of Winchester, Va., Sept. 19, 1864, he was wounded and confined in the general hospital at Garvis, Md. He re-entered the service Dec. 21st and remained to be mustered out at the close of the war July 11, 1865, at Burlington. The records further state that all the members of his company were his intimate comrades.
