EATON COUNTY MEMORIAL REPORT

His record is on high. It is a consolation that sweetens the bitterness of our grief, that these sad hours are permeated with such blessed memories. And may these sorrowing ones console themselves with these precious truths. From another Newspaper. The citizens of Flint were greatly shocked on Saturday morning last by the announcement of the death of Mr. Jacob B. Covert, a well known resident of the. third ward. As he had been on the street the day before as usual, and in apparently good health, the surprise was painful in the extreme. He arose early in the morning as usual, to arrange the fire, and on returning to his bed, he complained of a severe pain in the region of his heart. He had been accustomed to these attacks, but this one was of unusual severity, and Mrs. Covert immediately summoned Dr. Murray, residing across the street, who came only to find him in the actual agonies of death. He survived but a few minutes, passing away at about seven o'clock. He reached his 76th birthday on the Monday preceding his death, and the event was celebrated by quite a gathering of intimate friends at his house. It was a happy occasion with him, for he was always socially inclined, and enjoyed the society of friends with great zest. On the evening before his death a number of the family friends had been entertained at his house, in honor of his wife's birthday, and he had been very happy at this little gathering also. Mr. Covert was a native of New York, but coming to Michigan at an early day, he spent a number of years at Northville, Wayne county. He had been a resident of Flint for about twenty years. - He was the builder and owner of the fine three story block on Saginaw street bearing his name.
