Obituary

DEATH OF GEORGE CLARK

Barre Resident Since 1877, Was Veteran of Civil War.

George Clark, a veteran of the war between the states and for thirty-seven years one of Barre's well-known residents, passed away at his home, 84 Merchant street, yesterday. Death followed a confinement of three weeks, although the end was due to a general breakdown that became more noticeable in the last year of his life. Mr. Clark leaves his wife, four children, a brother, two grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. Two daughters, Mrs. W. P. Day and Mrs. Fred Knapp, live in Barre respectively. His two sons, William A. Clark and Charles A. Clark, are both residents of this city. A brother, Daniel Clark, lives in Chelsea. Mr. Clark's sister, Mrs. L. U. Hyde, died in Chelsea many years ago.

The deceased was born in Williamstown, June 22, 1832. While he was a lad his parents moved to Chelsea, where most of his boyhood was spent. His marriage to Elmira Allen of Baltimore, Nd. , took place in Baltimore January 20, 1858, and when death came to the husband a union of 56 years standing was broken. When the call for volunteers was sounded in the stirring days of '61 Mr. Clark came home to Chelsea and was among the recruits who enlisted in Company D of the 12th Vermont infantry. He was a nine months man and saw hard service while with the colors. Some years after the war Mr. Clark returned with his wife to Vermont. He had lived in Barre continuously since 1877. In his religious affiliation, he expressed a preference for the Universalist church.

Funeral services will be held from the house Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The officiating clergyman will be rev. J. R. Reardon of the Universalist church. Burial will be in Elmwood cemetery.
