Charles W. Cook was born in Craftsbury, April 7, 1843, and died in West Glover, on last Thursday, July 3rd, after a brief illness of only a few days. He was the son of Emery and Calista Cook and came with his parents to West Glover to live when only 15 years years of age. Nov. 26, 1868 he was united in marriage to Miss Helen M. Barber, who is now left to mourn the loss of a kind and devoted husband, and who has the sympathy of a large circle of friends in this, her time of sorrow. Mr. Cook entered and served for a time in the Civil war and was one of those who had part in the battle of Gettysburg, which battlefield he had intended to visit at its recent fiftieth anniversary. He was one of the most active and prominent members of Mason post, G. A. R. Here by his comrades he will be missed as they from time to time shall meet. Since coming to West Glover, Mr. Cook has always resided here or in the immediate vicinity. During the past few years he has been engaged in the Star Route mail service from West Glover to Barton, being genial, obliging and accommodating in the service which he gave to the public.

He always took an active interest in those things which were the best for the community, and always lived himself with the forces which stand for the right. In his earlier days he united with the Methodist church, which relation he sustained until his death, and yet he was a regular attendant of the Congregational church in his own community, gave it his support and was interested and worked for its prosperity. Many have said to the writer, as much as any man, Mr. Cook will be missed in and about the village in which he lived. He was genial, kindly disposed as a neighbor, ever ready to give assistance to others when needed. He leaves besides the wife three brothers, Joseph Cook of Yarmouth, Maine, and Edgar Cook of Barton, and one sister, Mrs. Kate Barber of West Glover and several nephews and nieces. Funeral services were held at the Congregational church at West Glover, Saturday July 5, Rev. M. S. Eddy, assisted by Rev. Glen Douglass of Glover, officiating. A large gathering of people from Glover and Barton were present at the services, including Mason post and Relief corps. This and the abundance of flowers gave silent, but eloquent testimony of the high esteem in which he was held. A wide circle of friends extend sincerest sympathy.
