DIES IN WATERTOWN
Had Been Ill Since Last February With Bright's Disease.
Frank Dezengremel, one of Cape Vincent's respected citizens, died shortly after 10 o'clock Sunday night at No. 905 Boyd street, Watertown, where he and his family had taken up their residence for the winter. Mr. Dezengremel's death was due to Bright's disease, with which he had suffered for some time.
Mr. Dezengremel was born at Rosiere on May 24, 1860. After completing a course at Ives Seminary, Antwerp, he came to this village, his parents having moved here from their farm at Rosiere, and entered the drug store of the late Dr. Hanley N. Bushnell. Later he engaged in the grocery business with Wallace Gray, the firm being known as Dezengremel and Gray. After Mr. Gray retired he conducted the business alone, and subsequently disposed of the same to Joseph C. Gregor, and retired from active business.
For the past eight or ten years, Mr. Dezengremel had been the efficient secretary of the Cape Vincent Agricultural Society; and to his energetic efforts, in a great measure, is due the success of the organization. It was mainly through his efforts that the fair society was able to secure for the past few years the large exhibits of live stock and poultry from Fulton, Oswego, Sandy Creek and several places in Jefferson county. He had a wide acquaintance with horsemen of Northern New York and the border towns in Canada, and the races at each fair since he had been secretary were always satisfactorily filled.
A couple of years ago he engaged in the insurance business and at his death represented a number of companies writing life and accident policies.
Mr. Dezengremel was a member of the Cape Vincent Yacht Club and the Cape Vincent Motor Boat Club. He served the village as trustee for several terms and was identified with the Scotch Brook cheese factory.
Besides his widow, who is a daughter of the late Joseph and Cornelia [Calvin] Crevolin, he is survived by two daughters, the Misses Edna Marie and Harriet Blanche Dezengremel.
The body of Mr. Dezengremel arrived at the Cape on the 1:15 train to-day [Wednesday] and the funeral was held from St. John's Episcopal church, of which he was a member, the Rev. Walter E. Cook, of Marcellus, officiating. The remains were placed in the vault at Riverside cemetery.
