MAURICE PECHIN IS DEAD

Old Washington Resident Succumbs to Paralysis After Year's Illness

Maurice Pechin, an old resident of Washington, and a veteran of the Civil War, died yesterday at his home, 2519 Eleventh street northwest, as the result of a paralytic stroke. He had been practically helpless for over a year.

Mr. Pechin came to Washington immediately after the Civil War, served as private secretary to Major Emery; graduated at Columbian University, and was admitted to the bar.  He formed a partnership with James O. Clephane in the seventies as court reporters. Afterward Mr. Clephane and Mr. Pechin, together with Charles T. Moore, Andrew Devine and a number of other Washingtonians started a company to develop a typesetting machine, which was the forerunner of the Mergenthaler.

Mr. Pechin was prominent in the affairs of the Secular League and Theosophical Society, and was a member of Kit Carson Post, G.A.R. This post will conduct the funeral services on Friday at 2 p.m. at the residence. The interment will be in Arlington Cemetery. Mr. Pechin is survived by Mrs. Pechin and three children - Herman Pechin and Miss Isabel Pechin, of this city, and David M. Pechin of New York.
