Rutland Daily Herald, Feb. 17, 1890:
James Cusick [Cusack], who lives just south of the Bennington & Rutland railroad shops, died very suddenly on Saturday, and heart disease is supposed to have been the cause of his death. He died while sitting in a chair while his wife was sick in bed in an adjoining room. Dr. Hanrahan was one of the first persons to enter the house and find the old man, who afterwards informed Mrs. Cusick of the death of her husband. It was about noon when he expired. Cusick was 73 years old and had been a resident of Rutland the past 18 years. He was a member of Roberts Grand Army Post.
