Obituary

DANIEL R. COBB

Again we are called upon to record the death of one of our oldest and most respected citizens, Daniel Rowell Cobb. Mr. Cobb was born in Ticonderoga, N. Y., April 1, 1836, and was the fourth son of James P. And Martha (Drew) Cobb. Early in life he came to Vermont and in Irasburg in June, 1861, he was united in marriage to Miss Eliza Ann Watson. Three children were given to this home: Etta M., who is Mrs. C. A. Copeland of West Burke, James E., who died in infancy, and Elmer D., who passed away when only sixteen years of age. At the age of 26, Mr. Cobb volunteered to serve in the Civil war and on Sept. 3, 1862 enlisted in Company I, 15th Regiment. On Nov. 14 he was promoted corporal and on August 5 of the next year, he was mustered out, having served a little over a year. He was a faithful and interested member of the G. A. R. Post of Glover. Nearly all his life has been spent in this place and he followed the blacksmith trade for many years. Mrs. Cobb died Oct. 8, 1903, after they had spent together forty-two years of married life.

On Oct. 11, 1906, he married Mrs. Eliza Woodward of Enosburg, and a little over ten years they were privileged to journey together. He was a man of good judgment, a kind friend to those in trouble and he worked for the betterment of the town in which he lived. He was a member of the M. E. Church and his loss will be felt in the church and community. If Mr. Cobb had been spared until the first of April he would have been 80 years of age. He was very tenderly cared for but medical aid could not save him and the end came suddenly on Sunday, Nov. 14. The funeral services were held Tuesday, prayer at his late home at 12:30, and the service at the M. E. Church at 1 o'clock, his pastor, Rev. L. P. Chase, officiating, and speaking comforting words. The G. A. R. Attended in a body and conducted their service in memory of their departed brother. The lilies from the children and the pillow from the G. A. R. and W. R. C., were very pretty floral offerings. He leaves to sorrow his departure his widow, daughter and family of West Burke, a sister, Mrs. E. S. Moulton of Denver, Colo., and several nephews and nieces. To the bereaved ones we would extend our heartfelt sympathy and would ask them to allow us to share this burden of affliction with them. Those from far away, who attended the funeral were Mr. And Mrs. Charles Copeland and family of West Burke, Miss Viola Cobb of Derby, Mr. And Mrs. W. H. Cobb of Hanover, N. H., A. A. Church of Barnard, William Woodward of Saxonville, Mass., Mrs. George Seagrave of Wellesley, Mass., Mr. And Mrs. G. E. Shepard of Hardwick and Mr. And Mrs. Waldo Potter of Albany.
