  Dedication of Lemuel Cook Historic Marker
The Orleans County Dept of History in conjunction with the Orleans County Historical Assn and Clarendon Historian will host a dedication ceremony for a new historic marker at the Cook Cemetery in Clarendon. Cook, a young man from Connecticut, enlisted with the 2nd CT (Continental) Light Dragoons to serve for the duration of the American Revolution. Upon his death in 1866, Cook was regarded as one of the oldest pensioners of the American Revolution. What is known for sure is that Cook was the last official pensioner of the war, the last surviving veteran of the war whose service was proven with discharge papers signed by Gen Washington himself.
