Obituary of Coupland Randolph Page, Winchester, Virginia.

After a long period of ill health, Rev. Coupland Randolph Page, minister of the Episcopal Church, a veteran of the War between the States and of the war with Spain, an unreconstructured Southerner and a member of the noted Page family of Virginia, died at his home in Winchester at the age of seventy-eight years. He was a son of William Nelson Page, and was born in Cumberland County, Va. Later on, the family moved to Lexington, Va., where he was a student when the War between the States came on.

Joining the Liberty Hall Volunteers, an infantry unit organized among the students of the college, and which became a part of the 4th Virginia Infantry, Stonewall Brigade, with heart and soul dedicated to the cause of the South, young Page threw himself into the mighty conflict and took an active part in many of the great battles of the war.

His hazardous duties took him into the thick of the fighting, and he was wounded three times. He was an aid on General Pendleton's staff, and was adjutant of Cutshaw's Battalion of Artillery.

After the war he studied for the ministry at the Episcopal Seminary, Alexandria, Va., and after his ordination he took charge of a Church in Kentucky. Later he was transferred to the Diocese of Maryland, and served a number of Churches of that State. During the Spanish-American War he was chaplain of the 1st Maryland Regiment, and continued that connection with the regiment for twenty-five years.

Retiring from the ministry some years ago on account of deafness, he made his home in Winchester, where he was held in high esteem and affection. He is survived by his wife, who was Miss Ella Baker, of Winchester, two daughters, and one son.
