Obituary

Death of a Vermont Soldier The Troy Times of Saturday, July 19th, has the following:

On Monday last a wounded Vermont soldier, named John Clark, a member of the Sixth Vermont regiment, arrived at the American hotel, in charge of his father. - This poor fellow, although within a few miles of home, could go no further, and was obliged to remain at the hotel, where, from parents and friends, he had the best possible care and attention. Last night the unfortunate solider, after suffering for nearly three weeks from his wound, died peacefully and calmly. He was shot in the breast on the 4th of July, in the last desperate efforts of the rebels to drive our army into the James River. Clark was a native of Lincoln, Vt. His remains will be taken home for burial this evening.
