Capt. Thomas R. Clark, one of the most prominent and well known townsmen, died at his residence in South Village on Sunday, July 5th. Mr. Clark was an expert and renowned musician, formerly drum major of the 1st Vt. Regiment, and afterwards 1st Lieutenant of Co. E of the 6th Regiment, from which he was detailed to the Signal Corps, and promoted to Captain. His funeral, which took place on the 7th inst., was one of the largest ever known in town. He was a Mason of the highest standing, which fraternity attended his last rites, and performed in silent sadness the last kind offices of respect for their beloved and respected Brother, who had “wrapped the drapery of his couch about him, and lain down to pleasant dreams.”
