Edmund S. Colby, who conducts a real estate and insurance agency in North Andover, was born in Waterford, Me., February 20, 1854, son of the Rev. E. K. and Georgiana J. (Saunders) Colby. The Colby family, which is of English origins, descends from Anthony Colby, who was born in Amesbury, Mass., about the year 1690. Edmund S. Colby's grandfather, Thomas Colby, resided in Epping, N. H.

E. K. Colby, the father of the subject of this sketch, was born in Epping, N. H., in 1812. After completing his education, he entered the ministry, and was located in Waterford, Me., until 1856. when he was transferred to Cape Cod. Some years later he removed to Auburn, Me., and thence to Gorham, Me., where he still resides, being now eighty-five years old. He married Georgiana J. Saunders, of Woodfords, Me., daughter of Joshua Saunders. Her grandfather kept the old Saunders Tavern, a celebrated hostelry of Woodfords (now Deering), in the latter part of the eighteenth century. Mrs. E. K. Colby became the mother of two children namely; Edmund S., the subject of this sketch; and Jennie M., who taught in the Gorham Normal School for ten years.

Edmund S. Colby went with his parents to reside on Cape Cod when he was two years old. Having acquired his early education in the public schools, he took a two years' course at the Maine Wesleyan Seminary, Kent's Hill. Then, desirous of learning the machinist's trade, he came to North Andover, Mass. Entering the machine shops of Davis & Furber, he served an apprenticeship, and learned his trade, which he afterward followed as a journeyman for twenty years. In 1893 he abandoned that occupation to enter the real estate and insurance business, which he has since followed.

Mr. Colby is chief engineer of the North Andover Fire Department, and was Tax Collector for six years. In politics he is a Republican. He is a member of Cochichawick Lodge F. & A. M. By his marriage with Annie, daughter of Ivory Littlefield of Kennebunk, Me., he became the father of three children, none of whom are living.

DEATH TAKES
EDNA A. COLBY

Is Stricken With Fatal Malady About
A Year Ago - Interment In
McHenry Cemetery

Edna A. Colby, daughter of Clarence and Henrietta Colby, was born on the old homestead in Nunda township, Nov. 9, 1881. She was a bright, happy school girl, and an earnest, studious pupil. After completing the grades in the district schools she attended the high school at Crystal Lake for a short time. However, the environment of home life appealed to her so strongly that she gave up her studies to take up the duties of the home. She remained with her parents until the time of her passing, and was ever a source of great comfort and joy to them in their declining years.

Edna was truly a lover of nature - the flowers, the trees, the birds and the dumb animals alike shared in her admiration.

About a year ago Miss Colby showed signs of failing health, but at first gave the matter very little thought. However, the decline became so rapid and marked that her relatives and friends became greatly alarmed and sought the advice of local physicians, who recommended the counsel of skilled specialists in Chicago. It was discovered that a fatal malady had become so deeply seated that she was beyond all human aid. She failed gradually until last Monday morning, Dec. 12, when she sank to rest in eternal sleep as peacefully as a weary child sinks to rest in its mother's arms, at the age of 40 years, 1 month and 3 days.

While we mourn with heavy hearts today the departure of one near and dear to us, there is comfort in the thought that she has passed to a land of sunshine and flowers far away from the haunts of pain and sorrow.

Besides her father and mother, she leaves two sisters, Mrs. Lee Lockwood and Mrs. Truman Flanders, together with a large number of relatives and friends, to mourn her untimely death.

Funeral services were held at the home at one o'clock Wednesday afternoon, Rev. H. C. Dick officiating. Interment was in the cemetery at McHenry.
Parents: Clarence W. COLBY and Henrietta THURWELL.
