Oscar E. Park

Oscar E. Park, who was found asphyxiated in Chicago several weeks ago, was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Elihu Park and was reared in Newfane. He served three years in the Civil War as a member of the Eighth Vermont regiment. A brother, Otis, also a veteran, died in Brattleboro, several years ago and Charles E., the oldest brother, died in Williamsville last summer. Walter b., the youngest, is the only surviving member of the farmily. Oscar Park had been at a hospital and declined to have a surgical operation performed.
