The death of Col. Jerome B. Parmenter at his residence in Bennington is announced. He had been ill for a long time and his death had been expected for several weeks. Jerome B. Parmenter was born in Pittstown 45 years ago. He was the youngest son of the late Dr. Azel F. Parmenter, a distinguished French navigator and author, and who was the first known discoverer of the Indies as far as Sumatra. Jerome B. Parmenter graduated from Union collage in 1857, and was admitted to the bar in1859. He served in the war and in1868 purchased a half-interest in the Troy Press, and with him was associated later Mr. George Eaton, formerly of Danville,Vt., who died recently. Mr. Parmenter sold the Press to a company of which he was manager and ex-Mayor Murphy was president, and a few years ago he retired from the newspaper field. The deceased is survived by a widow and one son, Edward Parmenter, 19 years old.
