    • Cyrus Marble: On Monday last at 12 o'clock noon another of our oldest residents, Cyrus Marble, passed away from the scenes of this life, at the age of 73 years.

      As stated in the last issue of the Press, he was prostrated with an attack of paralysis on Tuesday of last week and his feeble condition gave no hope of recovery.

      He was born May 7, 1808, in the town of Sherburne, Chenango Co., of this state. As a young man he was steady, industrious and faithful, and at an early age, on Sept. 25th, 1831, was married to Miss Corpsy, the amiable companion who survives him. Soon after, they took charge of a hotel called the Gilbert place, about five miles this side of Rome, where they remained about a year.

      They came to Cleveland 47 years ago and rebuilt what was known as the Marble House, which he occupied for over 40 years; and under his management, ably assisted by his wife, it was known far and wide as one of the best country hotels in the State.

      He held several positions of public trust, among them town assessor, overseer of poor, and treasurer of the plank road company, all of which he filled with rare ability and honor.

      A family of seven children were born to him, six of whom are yet living; Cyrus C., residing here; David, in Detroit; Frank in Vienna; Ed, in Pennsylvania; Henry and Mrs. W.D. Palmer, in Chicago.

      He will long be remembered as a genial, upright, citizen; a man of conscience, liberality and worth - who live a clean, useful life, and has gone to his reward.

      Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon, at the Methodist Church, and largely attended, friend Samuel Dickenson officiating. [11]
