Abraham Kost

IPAVA — Died, near Ipava, Feb. 14th, of general debility, Abraham Kost, aged seventy-two years, eleven months and two days. Mr. Abraham Kost was born in Cumberland county, Pennsylvania, and married Miss Mary Walker in Ohio and came to this county in 1840. In this union four children were born, three daughters and one son. The son died seven or eight years since with consumption. He has lived on the old homestead nearly fifty years. He leaves an aged wife, three daughters, four brothers and many friends and relatives. Uncle Abraham Kost was an honorable, upright and conscientious christian man. He had been a consistent member of the M. E. church for fifty years, and was ever faithful to his church. He was a devoted husband, indulgent father, a true friend to the down trodden and oppressed. He was the pillar of strength in his church and household. The hungry and weary were rarely turned away unalmsed, unsatisfied and unfurnished. His word was as good as his note, and he performed that which he proposed. His memory will be long cherished for his many virtues, sterling integrity and his inflexible rectitude toward his fellow man. He had a beautiful monument erected in our cemetery, where this good man lies in sweet repose. Rev. Wasmuth conducted the funeral ceremonies, to mother earth beneath the sod.
