THE WESTERN STAR, 22 March 1907
Obituary of AUGUSTIN BROWNELL COOK
Augustin Brownell Cook, son of Mr. and Mrs. Justin O. Cook of Protection died at 2:40 p.m. on Tuesday, March 19, 1907, aged 6 years, 8 months and 18 days. He had a few months previously suffered an attack of the mumps and later an abscess formed in his head. The little sufferer was patient and cheerful, however, during all the time of his sickness. Brownell, as he was generally known, was a great comfort to his parents and was loved by all who knew him. He was an obedient child and gave promise of years of usefulness. He had become much interested in his school and Sunday school work. During his sickness he always requested that his Sunday school papers be read to him, also he frequently requested that his mother read from the Bible which his Sunday school teacher had given him.

Funeral services were conducted on Wednesday afternoon by Rev. W. T. Ward of the M. E. church, after which interment was made in the Protection cemetery. To the parents and other relatives whose hearts are now weighed down with inexpressible sorrow the sincere sympathy of all is extended. May they find comfort in the promise of the Savior that, "Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted."
