Died, of pneumonia, after a short illness, Mr. Thomas Cole Coffey, aged 72. A native of Wayne county, Mr. Coffey came to Lincoln about 20 years ago, and has since resided on the farm that he purchased near Maywood. He was a descendant of Gen. Coffey, who fought with Gen. Jackson in the Battle of New Orleans, and his mother was a relative of Ex-President Cleveland. Like the rest of his family he was noted for his nobility of character, honesty of purpose and great fund of common sense. He was married three times, first to a Miss Miller, second to a Miss Haven and his third wife was the widow of the late Shelby Stone, whose maiden name was Amanda Hudson, a cousin of Mrs. H.R. Saufley. There were no children by the latter marriage, but by the others there survives Mr. Marsh Coffey, Mrs. B.F. Hayden, Mrs. Z.T. Hall and Mrs. Henry Newland, and they with the widow mourn as kind a husband and as indulgent and loving a father as ever lived. Mr. Coffey was a member of the Christian church and an upright man in all his acts and dealings. He had amassed a comfortable fortune, but the good name that he leaves to his children is of greater value than the riches of a fleeting world. Many friends and relatives followed the remains to Buffalo cemetery Wednesday afternoon where after a short talk by Rev. John Bell Gibson, they were consigned to the tomb.
