Death of Clark Brown

Clark Brown, 73, passed away Monday morning, Jan. 1. in his home, the principal cause of death being heart disease, from which he had suffered several years. He was the youngest of four children of Levi and Emily Brown of Newfane, and was born and lived in Newfane until about 17 years ago, when he moved to Marlboro, where he lived until he moved to this village June 8, 1910.

Mr. Brown was twice married. His first wife was Mary Wilson, who died about 23 years ago. Five children were born to then, all of whim survive - four sons and one daughter, Asa, Herbert and Carl of Newfane, Pearl of Marlboro, Emily of Boston. He leaves one step-daughter, Mrs. Henry F. Brown of Brattleboro. On March 30, 1896 he married Mrs. Lucy A. Goodell of Marlboro, who survives. Mr Brown enlisted in Company I, 8th Vermont Volunteers and was a member of C. B. Lawton post of Wilmington.

He was a kind husband and father, an obliging friend and neighbor. His many friends have a full measure of sympathy for the bereaved ones.

The funeral was largely attended in the Baptist church Wednesday, Rev. G. W. Russell officiating. The four sons, Asa, Herbert, Pearl and Carl acted as bearers. The burial took place in South Newfane beside his first wife.

Those from out of town who attended the funeral were Miss Emily Brown of Boston, Mr. And Mrs. Henry F. Brown of Brattleboro, Mrs. Bert Adams and Henry Worden, A. Williams of Marlboro, Mrs. and Mrs. S. H. Morse, Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Halladay, Will Howe, Mr. and Mrs. M. H. Cheney, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Bruce, all of South Newfane, besides members of C. B. Lawton post of Wilmington.
