"Charles F. Conkey was born in Northwest Township, Williams Co., Ohio, Feb. 8, 1881, and died at the home of his sister, Mrs. James Daniels at Cooney, Ohio, Oct. 28, 1928, aged 47 years, 8 months, and 20 days. He was the son of Robert F. and Flora Kindig Conkey. Charles had been afflicted since his fourteenth year, yet he met life bravely and made the best of his handicap. For over twenty years he was the obliging and courteous operator at the Camden Telephone Exchange, at Cooney. During this time his faithfulness and kindness won him many friends as was evidenced by the large crowd of neighbors who came to express their respect and love at the funeral services. His was such a courageous life, as puts to shame any who are vastly more fortunate. The frailty of his body was scarcely realized, until an attack of tonsillitis consumed his energies in just a few hours. All that kindly care and medical skill could do was of little avail. In his departure, he leaves to mourn their loss, two sisters and one brother, namely, Mrs. James Daniels and Mrs. Carl Lesnet and W.A. Conkey, together with other relatives and a multitude of friends. Funeral services were held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Daniels, at Cooney, Ohio, Tuesday, Nov. 30. Rev. Charles D. Castle, D.D., of Montpelier, Ohio officiating. Interment at the Billingstown cemetery."
