Obituary

Woodstock

Charles P. Wentworth, a landmark here among our colored brothers, died last Monday morning. Mr. Wentworth was perhaps better known by the cognomen of "Old Duke." He was a barber by trade, and there are few among us who have not listened to his reminiscences of the past while sitting in his professional chair. "The duke" was a soldier in the 54th Mass, a member of George C. Randall Post of this town, and was buried under their ritual Wednesday afternoon of this week...George C. Randall Post have lost three comrades by death during the past month. The veterans are passing away, and the next ten years will deplete their ranks rapidly.
