by Cochran (Family :( )

1 edition published in 1821 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Three items related to the Cochran family of Pennsylvania: an obituary of Samuel Cochran who died in September 1821; a poem entitled "The Funeral" written by Stephen Cochran; and two religious poems, signed John, perhaps written by another Cochran. The obituary (really more of a short eulogy) is printed on pale blue (perhaps originally green) silk. It is possible that the poem "The Funeral" was written after Samuel's death. The religious poems, or perhaps hymns, are short. One begins "Blest is the man who shuns the place where sinners love to meet," and the other begins "When I can read my title clear to mansions in the sky."
