THE SEMI-WEEKLY LOCAL, COZAD, DAWSON COUNTY, NEBRSKA, JULY 23, 1926
Robert Graham Woodside was born at Johnstown, Indiana county, Pennsylvania,April 30, 1843. he died at his home in Cozad, Neb., July 17, 1926, at the ripe age of 83.
On June 2, 1869, at Dilltown, Pa., he was married to Miss Sarah McMullen. Their family consisted of eight sons and four daughters, all of who are living except three sons. Mr. Woodside was the last survivor of four sons and three daughters.
Mr. and Mrs. Woodside moved to Ohio in 1872, where they lived till the fall of 1877, which year they moved to nebraska, settling on their farm four and a half miles northeast of Cozad, where they lived and reared their family till September 1906 when they moved to the present home in Cozad.
He has been in declining health since December 1925, his last sickness beginning twelve weeks or more before his death.
While living on the farm he was instrumental in starting a Sunday school in Puff's school house, now known as District No. 26, and took a great interest in keeping it going. He was a member of the Bethel Evangelical church in his neighborhood and took an active interest in its affairs as long as he was able. When this church was disbanded and transferred to Cozad his membership was in the town church.
Mr. Woodside's reputation was above reproach, and all of his neighbors and friends speak of him in the highest esteem. He had honor and integrity in his business dealings that commanded the respect of everyone. His children and all his family rise and bless his memory. He won the approval of both God and his fellowmen.
A large company gathered at the home Monday afternoon to pay the last tribute of love and respect of the living to the righteous dead. Rev. A.P. Cooper, the pastor of the Presbyterian church, conducted the funeral, assisted by the Presbyterian choir which sang by request the same three hymns that were sung at the funeral of Mrs. Woodside fourteen years ago, in 1912. The interment was at Grace cemetery, six miles east of Cozad, on the Lincoln Highway.
