George W. Copple
----------
          "Taps" sounded for another of Glasco's old soldiers last Friday, when George W. Copple, one of our most loved old gentlemen, passed away at his home in this city. Mr. Copple, by his quiet, unassuming ways had not only held the highest confidence and respect of our oldest inhabitants, but was also a very good friend of many of the "youngsters" as he always maintained "youth of mind" even in his declining years. We will greatly miss his kindly countenance and friendly greetings, and the bereaved family can rest assured that the whole community shares their loss.
          Funeral services were held Sunday morning at 11 o'clock, at the M.E. church, conducted by Rev. Stolson, and interment was in Glasco cemetery.
          Mr. Copple is also survived by 85 grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.
          George Washington Copple was born December 15, 1843 in Shelby Co., Indiana, and died at Glasco, KS, April 30, 1920, aged 76 years, 4 months and 15 days. He was married to Miss Easter Trimble, March 31, 1864. To this union were born 15 children, 11 of whom are now living. They are as follows: Mary Bell McBane and Jas. and Fredrick Copple of Glasco, Kansas, Lulu Breen, and Ambrose , John and Arthur Copple of Delphos, Kansas, Adam Copple of Olympia, WA, Ella Houston of Enterprise, Kansas, Edward Copple of Salina, Kansas and Alpha Copple of Osborne, Kansas.
          The beloved companion died in Sept 1911. Mr and Mrs. Copple joined the M.E. church in Indiana of which Mrs. Copple was a member when she died.
          Mr. Copple was a soldier in the Civil War. He was member of Co. I, 51st Regiment of Indiana, Volunteer army life and exposure brot on sickness which caused his early discharge. From this sickness he was never free.
          The march of another soldier is over, his battles are all fought, his victories all won, and as in other days he lies down to rest awhile under the arching sky, awaiting the bugle's call.
          The funeral was held 11 a.m. Sunday by Rev. Stolson of the M.E. Church.

Funeral of Mrs. Copple
----------
          At the advanced age of 66 years, 9 months and 26 days Mrs. Easter Ellen Copple passed to the Great Beyond on Wednesday, Sept. 27, 1911. The funeral services were conducted by the Rev. Harding at the M.E. church Saturday, Sept. 30. Another good woman gone to her reward.
In Memoriam
          Esther (sic) Ellen Trimble was born in Shelby County, Ind., July 23, 1844. She was united in marriage to Geo. W. Copple, March 30, 1864. They came to Kansas in 1887 settling in Meredith, afterwards residing in Glasco and vicinity. To them were born fifteen children, eleven of whom are living to mourn the loss of a devoted mother and comfort the bereaved father.
          Mrs. Copple joined the Methodist Episcopal church when sixteen years of age, and until disease took toll of her vitality, was a regular attendant at the services of her church.
          She has battled with a dread disease for a number of years during which time she has set an example of Christian fortitude and patience, awaiting the messenger whose mandates all must obey. She feared not the time of her departure, for her life had been such that death was robbed of its sting.
