Death and Burial of Alanson Cook

The remains of Alanson Cook were brought here Friday from Rupert and buried in Cedar Grove cemetery.

Mr. Cook died at his home in Rupert, July 17, after an illness of four years with consumption.

Alanson Cook was born in Whitehall, N. Y., January 9, 1845 and was a son of Luther and Clarinda (Snow) Cook. He was married July 4, 1865 to Phoebe Cook, who with seven children survive. He is also survived by two sisters, Mrs. Leander Allard and Mrs. Caroline Reed of this place and one brother, Pascal Cook of Parishville, N.Y.

Mr. Cook was a resident of Fair Haven for a quarter of a century. Four years ago he removed to Rupert, which place has since been his home.

The funeral was held Friday. After prayers at the late home of deceased the remains were brought to Leander Allard's on Fourth street, where services were held, Rev. Clarence Miller, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church officiating. The pall bearers were the four sons-in-law.
