Copp – At his home in Wahoo, Neb., on Friday, Feb. 9th, 1883 at 5 o'clock p.m., Lorenzo Copp, aged 71 years 2 months and 7 days.
The death of our respected citizen was very sudden and unexpected. In the morning of the day he died he was down town in usual health and urged is wife to hurry up dinner as he went home. Between 1 and 2 o'clock p.m. he emptied some straw ticks and on his way from the pen where he had done this work he fell, first on his knees, then upon his side. He was immediately discovered by his daughter and with the aid of his son who was near at hand he was carried into the house. He knew his daughter when she spoke and also his son as they stooped over him, but at once became unconscious and lay in a comatose state, apparently without pain until 5 o'clock p.m. when he gently and quietly ceased to breathe.
Mr. Copp was born in Rhode Island on Dec. 2, 1811 at an early period in his life he went to Chemung county, New York and from there to Tioga county, Pa. where he was married in 1830 to his surviving wife. From Pennsylvania he removed to this state and settled in this county where he has since resided. Mr. Cobb leaves a wife and eleven children to mourn his loss. He was a respected citizen, a kind neighbor and a good man. He was a sincere Christian, an honored member of the Baptist church in this place and died leaving behind him the rich legacy for his children of a good name.
"The memory of the just is blessed."
From the home to which we believe he has gone, he waits to greet those left behind
and beckons them to "come up higher."
Peace be to his ashes.
