JOHN STARK DEAD
Mendon Resident Fought in Union Army During Civil War.
John J. Stark of Mendon died early yesterday morning of heart disease. He had been considered seriously ill for but a few days and his death was a surprise to his friends, although he had been a victim of heart diseased for years.
Mr. Stark was 65 years old and had lived in Mendon for 20 years. He was born in Fort Ann, N.Y., and had at one time lived at North Clarendon. He served in the Union army during the Civil war in the 96th New York infantry and later in the Seventh Vermont infantry.
He is survived by his wife, one son, John W Stark of Springfield, Mass., and a daughter, Mrs., Minnie Faulkner of West Rindge, N. H.
