Obituary

BROOKFIELD

We chronicle this week the death of a veteran resident, U. A. Clark, Sr. It is but a short time since Mr. Clark returned from Milford, Mass., where he spent the winter with his daughter, Mrs. Wilcox. Last Friday, while in the garden of his son, U. A. Clark, Jr., he was overcome with dizziness and fell. Although no bones were broken, he did not recover from the jar of the fall. While retaining consciousness, he rapidly failed until Sunday morning, when he passed peacefully away. The funeral was held on Tuesday, the service being at his request at the old homestead, which is now occupied by his son, William. The pastor was assisted by the Rev. W. S. Hazen of Northfield. The singing was impressively rendered by C. H. Bigelow. The remains were laid to rest in the family lot in the old cemetery near the Center. U. A. Clark, Sr., was born in Brookfield Jan. 2, 1807, and consequently was 90 years old last January. He was married to Betsey Sampson in 1832, with whom he lived until her death in 1878. The fruit of this union was six children, two of whom died in childhood, and a third, Charles, preceded his father to the last resting place by only a few months, passing away at his home in Charlestown, Mass., Dec. 16, 1896. In 1879 Mr. Clark was married to his second wife, Lucia Martin, who died ten years later. Altho' never aspiring to office, he served his fellow townsmen at various times as selectman, assessor and justice of the peace. He made a profession of religion in early manhood and united with the church. In 1870 he was elected deacon of the Second church, in which capacity he served until his death. He was a liberal supporter of the church and was distinguished for his industry, perseverance, neighborliness, quick sympathies and conversational powers. In his old age he retained his faculties to a remarkable degree. He leaves three children, William and Urial Clark of this place and Mrs. Wilcox of Milford, Mass.
