Nile Cook

Plattsburgh Sentinel
TUES;, JUNE 18, 1929

The entire Community Sal-
mon River mourns, the passing o n
of the late Nile Cook on June 1st,
at 8:30 p. m. at the Champlain
Valley hospital. With dauntless
courage he entered the hospital
that morning, although those near
est him had little hopes for his re-
covery.
He was born June 5th, 1853, on
the farm where he has always lived
and like some sturdy tree whose’
roots grip and hold the soil round
about, so did Nile Cook reach the
hearts of his neighbors and friends,
by his friendship and unfailing aid
Numerous were the occasions when
it fell to his lot (or rather when he
accepted) the cost of the illness
and burial of those whose only
claim on his generosity was that
they were relatives so distantly removed
that the claim was merely
a courtesy. Generous in regard to
the church and any worthy cause,
was untiring in aiding the Red
Cross work A man of unquestion-
ed honesty and integrity
One can not greatly err whose
heart was so filled with love for
little children. His greatest joy was
in his home surrounded by his
eight boys:- Sumner, Wilbur, Eras
Coyle, Ruben, William, Patrick
and ESlias and his, wife, Mary Greg
ory of St. Chrisostome, Que., to
whom he was united in marriage
47 years ago. His only daughter
was drowned in the Salmon River
near her home when only 10 years
of age.
The Rev. Victor Moore who was
a favorite of Mr, Cooke spoke in
well chosen and appropriate words
of one whose friends were legion.
The church was filled to capacity
by sorrowing friends who, wished to ,
express their regret to Mrs. Cook
and family.
