Obituary

Obituary

Among the West Enosburgh items in the Daily Messenger of June 27, was one briefly announcing the death of Captain Thomas F. House at Saratoga Springs. The news of his death was a great surprise to his friends in St. Albans, for on his last visit here in the spring he was apparently in good health. Our West Enosburgh correspondent now writes that Captain House died on the 23d of June, after an illness of six days of congestion of the brain. He was a native of Enosburgh, and some 20 or 25 years ago was in the mercantile business in St. Albans. He was the first captain of the Ransom Guard, and resigned in the summer of 1862. After the war, Capt. House went to St. Augustine, Florida, where he became largely interested in real estate and hotel projects. He built the St. Augustine House, at present the largest hotel in the place. Capt. House had also been in the United States Customs service at St. Augustine. His age was about 60.
