Obituary

SOUTH BARTON

The community was saddened and shocked Sunday morning to learn of the death of E. M. Clough. He had not been well for some time but had been feeling better for a few days and did some light work on Saturday morning as usual. Later he was sawing wood in the shed and his wife went to the door to speak to him, but found him lying on the floor. She went to him and tried to get him up but he was so helpless she could not raise him. Seeing a passing team she called for help. He was taken into the house and spoke several times. Once he said, "It's a shock," but shortly seemed to grow more and more weak until 3:20 o'clock Sunday morning when he died.

Mr. Clough was born in Washington, Sept. 17Th, 1836. He had lived here since the year 1870 and had been a highly respected citizen. He was of a genial, happy temperament with a cheerful and kindly greeting for all. He was a soldier in the war of the Rebellion and will be sadly missed in his home and in the community. He married Betsey Berry Sept. 8, 1870, who is left to mourn his loss, and his step-son, B.C. Berry, and one brother, W. Clough, in Barre.
