Death of Charles M. Brooks
The death of Charles Madison Brooks, aged 82 years, occurred at his late home on the Kellogg road yesterday morning at 8:20 o'clock after a short illness. Mr. Brooks is survived by his wife and one grandson, Charles L. Tilley. He was a member of the G.A.R. Hurlburt Post and Franklin Lodge, F. & A. M.
The funeral will be held from the house Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock with the Rev. George R. Akers officiating, and burial will be in the Point cemetery.
Mr. Brooks was a very familiar character around St. Albans and a veteran horseman, having owned and driven some of the best horses in Franklin county and will be missed by the many friends that he has made. He was born in St. Albans August 6, 1845.
