BIOGRAPHY

CLARK D. CRESSY was born in Berlin, Vt., in 1849, volunteered August 29, 1862 and counted on the quota of his native town and enrolled into Captain Lewis L. Coburn's Company C. Was a bright, active young man, and stood first class at home. Educated in the old district schools and obtained a fine common school education considering the surroundings and opportunities of the town in which he lived. He had been well brought up under the advice of a kind father and loving mother. Was not as robust as some and the expense and hardship of active duty undermined his rather delicate constitution and yet he served his full time and returned with a good name as a soldier. His health was never good after his return from the war. He died in 1864 in Berlin, and is buried in West Berlin cemetery. He is not forgotten for on each recurring Memorial Day his surviving comrades of Berlin and patriotic citizens scatter the flowers of spring over his grave and raise the flag he loved so well above his resting place as tokens of gratitude and respect tor one who gave up all tor his country. A picture will be seen on page 204.
