Obituary

EAST PUTNEY
Funeral of A. C. Cobb Funeral services for the late Alphonso C. Cobb were held March 3. Plans were first made for services at Pierce’s hall but were changed and neighbors, friends and relatives gathered at the old Cobb homestead to pay their last respects to an old soldier whose casket was flag-draped and covered with many floral tributes.

Rev. F. E. Talbee of Putney officiated, attributing the deceased with all the traits of a true soldier his whole life through. The bearers were Hollis, Carl and Paul Cobb and Norman Dort. Burial was in the East Putney cemetery.

Among those who attended the funeral were Fred Pierce of Warren, Mass., Deacon Pierce, Mr. And Mrs. William Johnson and son, Russell, William Grimes and Reuben Blood of Putney, Charles Cobb, Mrs. Paul Cobb and son Norman and William Smith of Brattleboro, Mrs. Kate Dort of Keene, N. H., and son Norman of Harvard college, Carl H. Cobb of Syracuse, N.Y., Hollis Cobb of Paw Creek, N. C., Mrs. Arlie Paine of Newbury, S.C., Mrs. Cora Bascom of Schenectady, N.Y., and Mrs. Beatrice Donovan of North Adams, Mass. Mrs. Paine, Mrs. Bascom, Mrs. Donovan and Hollis and Carl Cobb stayed at O. S. Spaulding’s while in town.
