Veteran of Civil War Died Friday Morning at Age of 81
Joseph Clifford, aged 81 years, a veteran of the civil war, passed away Friday morning at his home on Branch street, following a long illness. Death was due to complications.
At the age of twenty he enlisted in company L of the 11th Vermont infantry. On June 24, 1865 he was transferred to company C of the same regiment and was discharged just two months later.
Following his discharge he returned to his native state where he spent the rest of his life. He has been a resident of Bennington more than a quarter of a century.
He is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Curtis Crosier, and one son, Bert Clifford, both of Bennington.
Funeral services are to be held Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the home. Rev. John L. Cole will officiate. Burial will be in the village cemetery.
