Obituary

IN MEMORIAM
John Dimmock (sic)

Once again, from Saturday until Monday at twilight, the big town flag floated at half-mast in tribute to the memory of one of the last members of Carlton Post, G.A.R. Although a native of a Vermont town and a Farmington resident for only eight years, John Dimmock, whose death occurred at his home on Spring street early Saturday morning, had endeared himself to many friends, and the Masonic and patriotice fraternities of this town. He was 85 years and eight months old and was born in Ferrisburg, Vt, one of eight children of Thomas and Anna (Dalrymple) Dimmock. In his youth he was a farmer, later having learned the trade of machinist, which he followed for many years. When scarcely out of his teens, he enlisted in the Federal army and saw active service in many important engagements of the Civil War with Company D of the 10th Vermont Infantry. He was every inch a patriot and for two years following the close of the war he served in the regular army. On his return to civilian life he resumed his trade and eight years ago he came to Farmington. He was one of the last three surviving members of Carlton Post, GAR, and a member of Fraternal Lodge, A. F. & A. M., giving to both a loyal devotion. Much sympathy is expressed for the bereaved wife, three daughters, Misses Grace and Elizabeth Dimmock of Farmington and Miss Carrie Dimmock, a trained nurse of West Medford, Mass, a son, Chief Water Tender George Dimmock, U.S.N., two sisters, Mrs. Sarah Ploof of Ludlow, VT, and Mrs. Hannah P. Hill of Springfield, Mass. Funeral held from the home on Monday. Bearers were from Fraternal Lodge, and military escort from Clarence L. Perkins Post, American Legion.
