HUGH CAPERTON DEAD

Former Washingtonian's Body Will Be Brought Here for Burial

Word has been received here of the death of Hugh Caperton, long a resident of Washington which occurred yesterday morning in Baltimore. He had been ill for sometime with arteriosclerosis.

Mr Caperton was born in Georgetown in 1854. Twenty-five years ago he removed to Baltimore where he engaged in the real estate business. For some years he had been retired from active pursuits. He was the son of Hugh Caperton, sr. a brigadier general of the District militia by appointment of President Buchanan. His mother was a member of an old Baltimore family. Mr. Caperton is survived by his wife, to whom he was married in 1903.

The funeral services will be held at the Baltimore residence. The body will be brought to this city for burial in Hloy Rood Cemetery on Wednesday.
