Abram Colby Final Discharged

Abram Colby was born in Ogden, NY, March 15, 1831, and passed away at his home in Waverly just as the sun was rising Sunday morning, Dec 13, 1908. He came of noble, Patriotic stock, his father being Col. Eastman Colby, who served in the war of 1812, and his grandfather being a veteran in the Revolutionary war. Not only was his father a pioneer in the commercial interests, having helped in founding the city of Rochester, NY, but he was also a leader in the religious progress of his day. Thus the son had the privilege of coming into a home where patriotism and religion were not only sacred traditions but also precious possessions. What wonder that he exemplified both! His home , too, inspired to larger culture and as a youth, Mr Colby took a preparatory course at the State Normal at Brockport, and later took a full college course in Rochester University, graduating in the class of 1856.
After graduating he was engaged for a time with his brother in buying grain, settling for a while at Janesville, Wis.

In response to President Lincoln's first call for troops in 1861, he enlisted with a company which came to be notable for it's uniqueness, "Mack's Black Horse Battery." His service continued until the close of the war, and altho never wounded, he was seriously ill with typhoid fever which left him broken in health.

After the war he was connected with his brother-in-law in the flouring business until 1867, when he settled in Ionia, Mich., and engaged in business by himself.

He came to Waverly in the spring of 1871 secured a farm two miles south of the city, where he continued to reside until 1899 when he moved into town, purchasing the home in which he continued to live until death called him.

On Jan. 2, 1867, at her home in Rochester, NY, he was united in marriage to miss Julia Vroom. Two children were born into their home, Nanna M. of this city and H. E. Colby, editor of Kimball's Dairy Farmer of Waterloo. All of these were privileged to be with him to minister to him in his last illness.

He also leaves two grandchildren, who were a source of great comfort, a sister at Rochester and a brother at Brockport, NY.

As a boy he united with the Baptist church at his home and thruout the years during his college course, his army days and subsequent life, he has been active in the work of the Kingdom. His parents would have been glad had he felt himself called to the Gospel ministry, but he had too high a conception of the sacred office to assume it without God's call. As an evidence of his devotion one of the first things he did after on his farm south of Waverly was to organize a Sunday School. And not infrequently in those early days was he called to minister in sorrow.

For years he has held the office of deacon in the Baptist church of Waverly and in every way has been zealous for the cause of the Kingdom. His training led him to be interested in education and in patriotic efforts. There was about him the refinement of the gentleman. Altho feeble for years, he was bedfast but a few days and the end came peacefully on a beautiful morning of Resurrection day which he delighted to honor. His life was indeed one rich toward God.

The funeral service was held at the home on Thursday afternoon, conducted by his pastor, Rev D. I. Coon, assisted by Rev. A. R. Rice. Robins Post attended in a body and conducted the services at the cemetery.
