Mount Union, PA., Jan 5 - John B Chilcoat, a Civil War Veteran, prominent lodge man, church man and highly respected citizen of Orbisonia died at the age of 92 years, at his home in that place, Monday morning January 4th at 7 o'clock. He had been ill for one year due to a complication of diseases incident to advanced age. He was a retired undertaker having been a member of the firm of Houck and Chilcoat and was well known all through this section. Born near McKendree church, Cromwell township, November 19, 1839, he was aged 92 years, 1 month and 15 days at the time of his death. He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church almost all his life and a charter member of the IOOF lodge of Orbisonia, and had been active in its work for 71 years. When the Civil War broke out he answered the call and served his country.
Surviving are his wife Mary Chilcoat who is past 86 years of age and the following step-children, Mrs Macalonan, Wilkinsburg, Mrs Gertrude Eby of Philadelphia and Samuel Carrothers of Washington D.C. Mr and Mrs Chilcoat lived happily together for 57 years. Orbisonia has lost a splendid Christian character and much respected citizen in the passing away of the "Grand Old Man". He was neighborly and kind and lived almost his entire lifetime in the community in which he died so that he was well known. A full military funeral will be held from the late home Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock in charge of Rev J. Leroy Cohick, pastor the the Methodist church of Orbisonia to which all Legion posts of the county are invited. Undertaken A.F. Reilart will direct the interment to the Orbisonia Cemetery.
