Obituary

FOUND DEAD IN HIS HOME.

L.H. Cogswell Aged 76, of Richford; Had Lived Alone.

Richford, Jan. 16. - L. H. Cogswell, aged about 75 years, was found dead in the hall of his house Wednesday at 10:15 o'clock by F.M. Barnes. Death had resulted from heart trouble. Mr. Cogswell lived alone and appeared to have started for the front door, when he fell back dead. Mr. Barnes hastened to summon Dr. C.S. Scofield, who found the body warm, although death had ensued sometime before. He was seen alive at about nine o'clock and had been in his usual health.

Mr. Cogswell was a veteran in the Civil war, having served in Co. F, 14th Vermont volunteers. He is survived by one son, the Rev. C.K.P. Cogswell of Washington, D.C.
