      - News was received here Wednesday
      forenoon last of the death of Mrs. Horace
      Cook, in her daughter's home, about two
      miles beyond Orwell. Mrs. Cook's maiden
      name was Margaret Ann Mellen. She was
      born in Ellisburg March 17, 1833, and
      nearly her whole life was spent in this
      vicinity. At the age of 22 years she
      married the late Horace P. Cook,
      with whom she spent nearly a half
      century of a busy life. Their hard
      work procured the home a little out
      of town, now the property of the
      daughter, whose watchfulness and
      care has been so willingly given
      during the last few years of her
      mother's physical and mental decline.
      Two sons and two daughters were
      born to these parents, all of whom
      are living. Charles Cook of Richland,
      Mrs. E. V. Hines of Mannsville, John
      Cook and sister, Mrs. Watson Aldrich
      of Orwell. There are also sixteen
      grandchildren and seventeen
      great grandchildren, an unusual line
      of descendants. Henry Mellen of
      Felts Mills is the only remaining
      brother. A brief service was held at
      the home near Orwell Friday morning
      at l0 o'clock. Rev. C. V. Haven
      conducted the funeral service in the
      Methodist church at 2 o'clock Friday
      afternoon, with burial in Maplewood
      by the side of her husband who died
      in December, 1901.
