Swan.   Last fall she went to visit her daughter, Mrs Grieve, where she became ill and had been confined to her bed since then.

  

Of a family of ten children, five survive her.   Mrs Swan and Mrs Grieve, and three sons, Thomas, Matthew and Charles Coburn, all of Brownville Junction, Maine.   The late Councillor Frank Coburn was a son, also Alexander Coburn, who gave his life in the Great War.   There are 26 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

  

Mrs Coburn was a member of Knox Presbyterian Church, a life member of he Women's Missionary Society and was for years a teacher in the Sunday Schools at Coburn and Manners Sutton.   She was a woman of great kindliness and was loved by old and young.

    Copied from newspaper clippings - 1902:

    Diphtheria Scourge

    Three Deaths in the Wood Family at Tweedside--Others Expected.

    Our Harvey correspondent writing Jan. 17th, says:

   

Mrs Wood of Tweedside, wife of Peter C. Wood, who died of diphtheria on Monday, died of the same disease yesterday morning.   Their eldest child also died on Wednesday.   The remaining child, which is about three months old is not expected to recover.   This child and an invalid sister of the late Mr Wood, are the sole survivors of the household.   Mrs F. V. Taylor, a trained nurse, was sent from Fredericton yesterday morning, but Mrs Wood was dead when she arrived.   The deceased lady was the eldest daughter of the late James Nesbitt of Tweedside, and was about 30 years of age.

   

The people here are appalled by the dreadful work of the disease and every effort is being made to prevent its spreading.

   

Family Wiped Out

    

Awful Scourge of Diphtheria at Tweedside

   

Harvey Station, York County, Jan. 18 -- A whole family, father, mother and two children, have been cut off by diphtheria in Tweedside.   On Friday evening Peter C. Wood contracted the disease and died Monday, the elder child died Tuesday and Mrs Wood died on Thursday morning and the younger child a few hours later.   The disease is of the most violent type and proved quickly fatal in spite of the best methods of treatment.   During the illness of the family their friends and neighbours prepared and brought food and other things necessary, but did not dare enter the house, and the doctor was unable to obtain the nursing required for his patients.   Mrs Nesbitt, Mrs Wood's mother, did everything she could to care for them, but she soon became exhausted.   Some of the parish officers and others, when they became aware of the state of affairs on Wednesday, joined together and wired Dr. Mullin of Fredericton, asking him to send a trained nurse for Mrs Wood and the child.   The doctor at once complied and the nurse arrived Thursday morning only to find Mrs Wood dead and the child dying.

   

Two other families in Tweedside, who had the disease are all recovering, and there has been no further spread of the disease.

   

The dreadful occurrence has cast a deep gloom over the entire community and much sorrow is expressed, as the young couple had many friends and were highly respected.

   

They had the following children:

  92   i.   Charles George Wood

  93   ii.   Bertha May Wood
