Charles Clark died last Sunday afternoon at his late residence on Barre street after a long and tedious illness. The deceased had been in feeble health for almost two years and recently suffered a shock, since which time his condition gradually became worse until his death last Sunday. He was born in Berlin 58 years ago and previous to the breaking out of the rebellion was employed as clerk in one of the stores in Montpelier. In the fall of 1861 he enlisted in the 11th Vermont regiment and was shortly afterward made a commissioned officer with the title Quartermaster Sergeant. After several promotions he came out of the war a Lieutenant of Company G. For a few years after the war he worked as carpenter and then secured a position as baggage master at the Central Vermont station which position he held to the time of his retirement a few years ago. Although a man of retiring disposition he made a great many friends who with the bereaved family sincerely mourn his death. The funeral was held on Tuesday afternoon at the late residence, Rev. J. Edward Wright officiating. The burial was in Green Mount cemetery. The deceased leaves a widow and one daughter, Mrs. Fred Peck, of this city, and a sister, Mrs. W. V. Herrick, of Berlin. George W. Kidder cared for him in his illness.
