    Small Pox in Sturbridge
    Charles Stone, of the United States army, a volunteer recruit from Sturbridge, was wounded in the right arm (fractured) during the battle of Antietam; afterwards he was removed to the hospital at Harrisburg, Pa., where he continued until a furlough was granted him the early part of last month. He reached home in Sturbridge, prior to the middle of November, in good general health. His arm was neither painful or troublesome, beyond that which is experienced in the slow process of healing from gun shot wounds. But here he has enjoyed the pleasures of home and the sweets of domestic bliss many days, he was invaded by the loathsome and contagious disease in its modified form, the small pox. Vaccination had softened its violence and made it not dangerous to himself, but it was full of postentious forebodings to those around him who had been exposed.
    The precautionary experience of the wife were far back in childhood beyond her recollection, and afforded no hopes of mitigation from the violence of the disease. The three children, those dear cherubs who so lovingly welcomed a fond fathers return, had been entirely neglected, and the Statute of the Commonwealth, which requires that “Parents and guardians shall cause their children and wards to be vaccinated before they attain the age of two years,” had been wholly disregarded.
    Mr. Stone occupies a large farmhouse of Mr. Charles G. Allen’s, some two miles from the center of Sturbridge and a less distance from Fiskdale, on what is called “Shumway Hill.” it is easily accessible from all sides, and yet retired from the thoroughfares of all commerce among the inhabitants of the town, the traveling public and the attendance of children upon public schools. The locality of the house is high, airy and healthful; and the edifice itself large, commodious and comfortable. It is occupied by two other families besides that of Mr. Stone’s, who have been alike neglectful of having their children vaccinated. There are something like thirteen children in those three families, more than half of whom had not been vaccinated and who had to some extent been exposed to this case of variloid.
    The timely recognition and report of the disease to the proper authorities of the town and their prompt and efficient action as a board of health, is hoped will arrest the spread of the malady and confine it within the limits of the first exposure. Mr. Stone is convalescent. The three children sickened nearly three weeks ago. One died Monday evening the 15th inst. Do the school committee enforce the law which requires children to be vaccinated before being admitted to Schools?
  • On 23 Dec 1862 his daughter, Lizzie Stone, died at Sturbridge, Worcester County, Massachusetts, at age 1 of small pox.
  • On 29 Dec 1862 at "The Worcester Palladium", Worcester, Worcester County, Massachusetts, Charles was mentioned, from The Worcester Palladium, December 29, 1862(Volume XXIX # 52),
    Small Pox in Sturbridge
    The Southbridge Journal states that Charles Stone, a volunteer from Sturbridge, was wounded during the battle of Antietam, and cared for at the hospital at Harrisburg, Pa., from whence he obtained a furlough and came home about the middle of November. Not many days after his arrival, he was attacked with the samll pox, in a modified form, previous vaccination having softened its violence.
    Mr. Stone is convalescent, but his three little children, neither of whom had been vaccinated, were taken sick, and one of them died on the evening of the 15th inst. Mr. Stone occupies a large farmhouse on what is called “Shumway Hill”, about two miles from Sturbridge center. the house is occupied by two other families, who have also been neglectful of having their children vaccinated. There are some thirteen children in the thre families, most of whom had never been vaccinated, and who have been exposed to this loathsome disease.

He is a farmer, as also are his sons; his son-in-law, Charles Biggs is connected with an iron foundry; his sons-in-law, James Barlow and Otis Barlow, are wheelwrights; another son-in-law, George L. Avery, is overseer of a weaving-shop, and all reside in Southbridge, and in that portion of Worcester County.

    Charles Biggs (son-in-law, husband of Lucy Stone; 4th R.I. Inf.) enlisted, served two years, was sick of a chronic dysentery, and was discharged.

    Henry C. Biggs (grandson, and son of Lucy Stone and Charles Biggs; 4th R.I. Inf. with his father) died of sickness in the army hospital.

    James Barlow, (15th MVI, son-in-law) enlisted for three months and again for three years was wounded at Antietam, in the hip, and was discharged.

    Otis Barlow (son-in-law, and brother of James Barlow) served in the army two years (1st CT H.A. and 2nd CT Vols.), and came home safe.

    George L. Avery, (15th MVI, son-in-law) entered the army, and was shot through the foot and discharged; after it healed he enlisted again, and stayed two years.
