"John V. Coffey, died at the home of his brother, Jo Coffey, at Moreland, on the morning of May 27th, 1904. His death was quite a shock to the people of this vicinity. It was generally known that he was sick, but no one thought seriously of his illness. Mr. Coffey was 50 years of age, and had lived at Middleburg all his life, till about a year ago he moved to Moreland and lived with his brother, Jo, on a farm owned by the two. He was a very industrious man and a successful farmer. The Lord had prospered him, and he was liberal in his contributions to the cause of his Master. He was a member of the Baptist church and was rarely ever absent from the services at that church, when he lived here. At no time was the church in need of money, that he was not willing to bear his part. The remains were brought to Middleburg Friday and after services at the Baptist church, conducted by Rev. J. B. Ferrell, were laid to rest in the beautiful city of the dead west of town. A good man is gone and the church and the world is poorer in consequence thereof."
