A Cobleskill paper of last week contained a notice of the death of Arlo C. Flagg, who died Monday, March 23, at the home of his niece, Mrs. LeRoy Brown, on North Washington Avenue, Cobleskill, where he had resided for the past three years. Mr. Flagg, who had never married, was born in Essex county, N.Y., on September 2, 1853, the son of Silas and Sally Hunter Flagg. Mrs. Brown and several other nieces and nephews survive. He formerly resided in Essex and was a guide in the Adirondack Mountains. Funeral services were held in Cobleskill at 2 o’clock Wednesday afternoon in the Mereness funeral home with Rev. C. R.

We were sorry to learn of the death of Arlo Flagg. He was born on Wescott Hill in Lewis, a neighbor of the writer's family. An uncle and two brothers were in the Civil War. One brother, "Sammy" did not return. He was one of a large family— a good boy, quiet and ambitious. We are glad some of his boyish dreams came true and he was permitted to do things and see places he wanted to. He became a shrewd business man. While yet a young man he went "out into the woods" as the Adirondack region of the Saranac Lake country and Bartlett's was called. It was a wilderness then. Arlo Flagg was a successful guide. He was associated in our earliest memories. A few years ago he called on us and recalled old times. And so another childhood companion and lifelong friend has passed to the great beyond.
