Death of Calvin Cook
Calvin L. Cook, 68, died yesterday afternoon about 3 o'clock at his home about a mile south of Vernon postoffice. Mr. Cook had lived in this town for about 35 years, coming here from Wardsboro. He was a veteran of the Civil War, and during that conflict received a bullet wound in the shoulder, carrying the ball until his death. Mr. Cook had suffered greatly from the effects of this wound and for the past 15 years had been a great sufferer from lead poisoning. But in spite of these afflictions he had been unable to get more than an ordinary pension. His wife was Miss Augusta Allen of Wardsboro. Mr. Cook leaves three sons - Fred A., of Vernon, Edwin of Baldwinsville, Mass., and Allen of Conway, Mass.
