FOUND DEAD IN BED
Death of John Jenkins of Thetford at Soldiers' Home
Bennington, Sept. 30. - John Jenkins was found dead in his bed at the soldiers' home hospital early Saturday morning. The nurse in making his first rounds to furnish coffee and toast noticed that Jenkins appeared to be asleep and felt of his head finding it warm. Half an hour later he went to his bed to call him again and received no reply to the call. He paid no attention to the shaking that he received and the nurse then found that Jenkins was dead. The attending physician thinks that he must have been dead half an hour at the least. He had been in poor health ever since he was admitted to the home in June from North Thetford. He served during the Civil War in Company G, 193d New York volunteers. He was a member of Thetford Post, G.A.R. The body was sent to Thetford for interment. His death was 119 at the Home.
