RECENT DEATHS OF VERMONTERS
Chauncey L. Clark died at his home in Leicester at 8 o'clock Sunday morning. Mr. Clark had not been ill recently, but was suffering from the effects of paralytic shocks sustained within the last three or four years. Mr. Clark was born in Castleton May 8, 1843, and was, consequently, in the 75th year of his age. He was the second son of Merlin and Clarinda M. (Lake) Clark and went with the family to Middlebury in 1860, after which time, until about a dozen years ago, he continued to live there. He served in the Civil war, a member of Company E, 14th Vermont volunteers. His father was a farmer on a large scale in Middlebury, a prominent man and for several years, a deacon of the Congregational church. After his return from the Civil war, Mr. Clark was employed in milling work in Middlebury, but had been unable to attend to much business since his paralytic shocks. He leaves seven children. Two were drowned early when young, one in Middlebury and one in Leicester. The surviving children are three young ones who live at the home in Leicester, Mrs. Robert T. Morse of Rutland, Mrs. William H. Davis of Graniteville and Harry Clark and Shirley of Lowell, Mass. The late Chester L. Clark, a prominent man in the Vermont Marble company's force at West Rutland, was a brother, and Mr. Clark is also survived by one sister, Mrs. Luna M. Morrison, and another brother, Joseph S. Clark, both of Middlebury.
