Nicholas C. Goble.
Nicholas C. Goble, son of the late George Goble, and for a number of years associated with him in vessel building, died yesterday afternoon at 4:45 o'clock at his home, 26 West Fourth street, after an illness of about five months. The direct cause of death was cancer.
Mr. Goble was sixty-two years of age. For twenty-five years he was employed by the Government as superintendent of pier and break water construction at this port, Fair Haven, Sodus, Charlotte, Pultneyville and other places. About three years ago he resigned his position and with his son, Lee Goble, and brother, G.W. Goble, founded the Goble Boat Works, that has been a prosperous and growing business.
By all who knew him Mr. Goble was held in the highest esteem. Among the men who worked under his direction he was always popular and deservedly so. He was a member of Christ church. The funeral will be held from the home tomorrow at three o'clock, the Rev. R.H. Gesner officiating.
Besides two sons, Lee of, of this city, and Thomas, of New York, Mr. Goble is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Henry H. Post, of this city, and Mrs. John H. Quirk, of New York, and three brothers, George W., Joseph H. and Thomas C. Goble, all of this city.
