Frank L. Casavaw
Rutland Daily Herald, March 21, 1904:
F. L. Casavaw of No. 15 Engrem avenue died at 2.40 o'clock Saturday afternoon as a result of a stroke of paralysis he suffered last Thursday evening. It was thought for awhile that Mr. Casavaw would recover as he seemed to be gaining the day following the shock, but a change for the worse took place Friday night and he died the following afternoon. Mr. Casavaw was born in Benson about 58 years ago and came here 26 years ago to enter the employ of the Howe Scale company, where he has worked ever since. Besides his wife he is survived by two sons, Frank Casavaw and George Casavaw, and one daughter, Miss Maude Casavaw, all of this city. The funeral will be held at St. Peter's church at 9 o'clock tomorrow morning.
