"The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 88, No 6, p 191, Feb. 9, 1920.

Matilda Huffman Coon, sixth child of Michael and Mary Livingston Huffman, was born in Clark County, Ohio, December 21, 1843, and died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Wade Loofboro, Welton, Ia., January 10, 1920.

At the age of six years she moved with her parents from Ohio to their home in Milton Township, near Rock River. Here she lived all her life until two years last October when she moved to Welton, Ia. She publicly confessed Christ at the age of thirteen years, was baptized by Elder Varnum Hull and joined the Milton Church. When the Rock River Church was organized she joined that church as one of the constituent members. Here she held her membership for a number of years. Soon after the Milton Junction Church was organized, she joined that church by letter, and remained a faithful member until her death. She was a careful student of the Bible and always spent some time each day in reading her Bible and studying her Sabbath-school lesson.

On October 27, 1859, she was married to Marshall R. Coon, by Rev. V. Hull, who preceded her by death a little more than a year ago. To this union two children were born, the oldest dying in infancy, and the younger, M. Eusebia, the wife of Wade Loofboro, of Welton, Ia.

She is survived by one daughter; one nephew, E. A. Davis, of Chicago, Ill., who lived with them for nine years; one sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Frink, of Milton Junction, Wis.; two grandsons, Wesley and Howard Loofboro, of Welton; one great-granddaughter and several nieces.

Funeral services were conducted in the Seventh Day Baptist church by her pastor, Rev. Edgar D. Van Horn, assisted by her former pastors, Rev. George W. Burdick and Rev. Henry N. Jordan of Milton. The beautiful tributes in these farewell addresses, the large gathering of old neighbors and floral offerings showed the very high esteem in which Mrs. Coon was held in a large circle of friends. The remains were laid to rest in the Milton Junction Cemetery.
