ALVIN HEAD CORBETT.
Dr. A. H. Corbett, one of the earfy
settlers of Holt county and a pioneer
business man of this city, died in a
hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania,
[Tuesday evening, September 1st, at
1D20 o’clock. Death was caused from
liver and gall bladder trouble.
Dr. Corbett has been in relatively
good health until recently, although
he has suffered short illnesses from
which he soon recovered. On July
26th he closed his'office in O’Neill and
went to Denver to look after the in
terests of the mining company of
which he is president. While in Den
ver he became ill, but recovered
sufficiently in a few days, so that he
was able to go to the home of rela
tives in Pittsburgh where he had plan
ned to spend several weeks before re
turning to O’Neill. On August 23rd
he was again • taken to the hospital
where he remained until his death.
Alvin Head Corbett was born near
Corsica, Pennsylvania, December 18,
1855, where he grew to manhood. In
the spring of 1884 he came to Holt
county and located upon a homestead
four miles east of O’Neill; being then
a single man he held the homestead
and opened a photograph gallery and
dental office in O’Neill both of which
he conducted for many years. He has
^continued the dental business to the
present time. He was united in mar
riage to Miss Sadie Coykendall, of
O’Neill, in February, 1885, and to this
union one son, Earl, was born, who
now resides in South Sioux City,
Iowa. Some time during the year
1890, Mrs. Corbett passed away. In
the fall of 1892 he was married to
Mabel Havens of Atkinson. No
children were born to this union.
Dr. Corbett has always been an
active man; in the early ’90's he di
vided time between O’Neill and Madi
son in the dental practice; later he
divided time with Atkisnson and Long
Pine and at one time with Chambers.
During the past twenty or more years
he has been associated with the Big
Five Mining Co., of Denver, which is
now known as the North American
Mining Co., of which he was president
at the time of his death. He was a
man with a wide circle of friends; he
was a man of even temperment and
was an untiring worker for the up
building and betterment of the com
munity in which he lived. He was
an active worker in the Presbyterian
church for many years.
The deceased was an active lodge
man being a member of the Masons,
I. 0. O. F., Encampment, Rebekahs
and the Muscovites.
He leaves five sisters and one
brother; they are Mrs. Emma Moore,
Mrs. Annie Frazier, Mrs. Maude
Knepshielii, Mrs. Mildred Miller, and
Mrs. Katheryn Swigart and Park
Corbett all of whom now reside in
Pittsburgh and vicinity. A sister,
Mrs. Jennie Orcutt, died last
November. The funeral services will
be held at Corsica, Pennsylvania, Fri
day afternoon at 2:30 o’clock. Burial
will be at Corsica.
