Death of Oscar N. Cross in Georgia

Oscar N. Cross of this city died yesterday in St. Joseph's hospital, Savannah, Ga., where he went October 29 for treatment for cirrosis of the liver of which he died, that disease being complicated with heart failure. The body will be sent to this city but its arrival is at present uncertain. Mr. Cross was 63 years old, a son of C. H. Cross now 92 years old, and a brother of L. Bart Cross of this city and George H. Cross of St. Johnsbury. His wife died suddenly last May and this event is believed to have hastened his death. He leaves one daughter, Miss H. Julia Cross, the well known vocalist.
