Obituary: William Coffey Gault was born in Williamson County, Tennessee, November 22, 1841. At the time of his death, he was 78 years, 6 months and 12 days old. At the age of three he moved with his parents Bedford County, Tennessee, where he resided till the year 1888, when he moved with his family to Texas and settled in Collin County. The deceased made his home in this county ever since he came here except two or three years that he lived in Hardenan County, Texas, and in Oklahoma for a while. He lived near Princeton for the last twenty-one years. He was twice married. His first wife was Miss Mazy Caroline Hight to whom he was united in marriage November 8, 1865. She was a sister of the late J.D. Hight of McKinney, father of Grovers and R.L. Hight born of this city. Six children were born to this union. Three of them died in infancy. One daughter, Mrs. Ida Bumpass, died in 1890; another daughter, Mrs. Bet Etta Simpson, died in 1906. Mrs. Etta Ross is the only living child of the first union. His first wife died February 17, 1890. His second marriage was to Miss Kitty Alexander and occurred in July of 1891. They had one daughter, Miss Jesse Gault survives his death. His daughter Mrs. Ross and son also make their home with him ever since her husband's death in 1896. When the civil war broke out he enlisted and served in the Confederacy in the 44th Tennessee Regiment. He served all through the war. However, he was captured a short while before the close of the war and was imprisoned when that great civil strife was to a close. At the age of 25, he professed faith in Christ. Ten years later he joined the Union Ridge Missionary Baptist at Rover, Tennessee. Soon after that, he was ordained a deacon which office he held continuously the remainder of his life. He was an ardent Sunday school worker. He taught a Bible class for ten years, until his health failed and he had to give it up. He was an Odd Fellow for more than a half a century. The deceased was a man of highest integrity, a true Christian, who was ever ready to lend assistance to the suffering and the needy. He was the last of his immediate family to pass away. For the last nine years, he has been practically a helpless invalid. His remains were prepared for interment by John K. Wilson, the Princeton undertaker, and conveyed to McKinney for interment this afternoon. As above stated the burial was under the auspices of the Odd Fellows Lodge of the city. Funeral services were conducted at the Princeton Baptist Church at 11 a.m. Friday by the Rev. G.A. Dale of Greenville, who was his former pastor.
