Mr. Emory L. Coblentz, 72, died at Frederick City Hospital after a lingering illness.
Banker, legislator, financier, organizer, churchman, musician and public spirited citizen, Mr. Coblentz was a leading figure in the life of his native county for more than half a century.
Mr. Coblentz was born on a 240 acre farm which his great great grandfather, Herman Coblentz, had acquired about 1790, after emigrating from Germany, having been born at the historic Fort Coblentz on the Rhine in Prussia.
Mr. Coblentz was twice married. His first wife, the former Miss Amy Doub, predeceased him. His second wife, who survives, was the former Miss Mary Kefauver, of Middletown.
Mr. Coblentz was one of the organizers of the Potomac Edison Company, which has grown into a large institution from a modest beginning. For many years he was the president, then was chairman of the board and, at the time of his death, he was a member of the executive committee and one of the directors.
Funeral services will be held at the late home in Middletown.
