Obituary

Swanton

Mrs. Sophia Columb died Tuesday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Fred Bushey. Mrs. Columb was 93 years old last June, and is believed to have been the oldest woman in this village except Mrs. Hannah S. Aseltine, or "Aunt Hannah" as she is always called, who is 96 years old and still able to visit her neighbors on foot and alone. The funeral of Mrs. Columb will be held at the Roman Catholic church Friday morning at 9 o'clock. She was the mother of eight children of whom only three are living, John Columb, Mrs. B. F. Brow and Mrs. Alfred Bushey. Mrs. Columb drew a pension on account of her son, Richard Columb, who died in the Civil War. She had two other sons in the same war, Joseph (dead) and John Columb, himself a pensioner here.
