Chico Enterprise, Thursday, January 21, 1941: "Widely Known Dayton Pioneer Taken by Death. Funeral services for Albert Willam Coon, 82, pioneer Dayton district rancher who died in a local hospital late yesterday, will be held tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock in the Nugent funeral home. The Rev. Errol B. Sloan of the Christian church will officiate, and members of the Durham I.O.O.F. lodge, of which the deceased was a member, will conduct graveside rites in the Dayton cemetery. Coon, a native of Coles county, Ill., came to the Dayton district with his parents in a wagon train. His mother died en route, and is buried on the Emigrant trail in central Nevada. His father arrived in Dayton December 15, 1860, and acquired rights to the property which later became the Coon ranch, which has been operated since then by the deceased and his brother, Robert Coon. They were successful ranchers and did much to build up this territory. Coon became a member of the Dayton I.O.O.F. lodge 60 years ago and later transferred to Durham when that community took over the Dayton organization. He is survived by a sister, Mrs. Martha E. Lewis, and a brther [sic], Robert M. Coon, both of Dayton, and several nieces and nephews."

Pallbearers were J.R. Henderson, H.L. Sohnery, James Weldin, D.E. Baker, David Frick and C.A. Schab."
