DEATH OF TWO BROTHERS


In the autumn of 1828, Enoch Colby and Sherburne Colby, sons of Nehemiah Colby, who then resided on the place on the Colby road, now owned by the widow of Rev. James Adams, were taken ill at about the same time with a disease of the lungs which finally developed in consumption. They declined very rapidly and, on Sunday forenoon, May 3, 1829, Enoch died. The announcement of his death to the people at the Congregational church during the intermission produced a profound sensation as it was known that his brother was near his end. At 8 o'clock in the evening of the same day, Sherburne also died. The funeral of the two brothers took place at the old Congregational meeting-house on Wednesday afternoon, the day following the annual May training. Col. Samuel Cass was the chief manager on the occasion. The meeting-house was completely filled by people who came from all sections of the town. The remains of the deceased which were enclosed in bright red coffins were placed upon biers in front of the pulpit. Rev. Mr. Wheeler preached an able and appropriate sermon in the course of which he spoke of the virtues of the two young men and the sad and extraordinary circumstances under which they had been cut off in their early manhood. At the close of the exercises the remains were taken to the old cemetery and buried in one grave. Enoch, the oldest brother, was 26 and Sherburne 23 years of age.
