Death of Mr. R. A. Cochran. ??
After a lingering illness extend
ing over a period of beveral years,
Mr. R. A. Cochran died at his
home in the Rehoboth sectiou last
Wednesday afternoon. His health
began to fail two or three years ago
aud his steady loss of strength caus
ed hts relatives and friends grea*
anxiety. He was never confined to
his bed however for any considera
ble length of time until he suffered
a stroke of paralysis about a month
ago. It appeared for a time after
being stricken that he would rally
and be restored to his accustomed
strength but soon a change fur the
worse was observed by loved ones
who watched so patiently and devo
tedly at his bedside..
The death ol' this good man, al
though he resided on the extreme
western side of the county, was a
distinct loss to the county as a whole.
In the Civil War he rendered faith
ful service and during the half cen
tury that has followed Mr. Cochran
was in the forefront of every good
He was one of the pillars of Re
hoboth church, and was one of its
most liberal supporters. Unless
providentially kept away, Mr. Coch
ran was always in his accustomed
pf.ace, ready to do his full share of
whatever was undertaken for the
promotion of the cause of Christ at
home and abroad. His examplary
life was a tower of strength to his
community. Everybody had confi
dence in Mr. Cockran, and his wise
counsel was frequently sought. Re
hoboth community has been made
better and richer by reason of his
having lived in* it. The funeral
was held at Rohoboth Thursday af
ternoon, Rev. J,. T. Littlejohn offi
ciating. .
Mr. Cochran is survived by his
devoted wife, one daughter, Mrs.
Fannie Green', and one son, Mr.
Evan Cochran.
