J H Malicoat, One of The Well Known Citizens of Ellettsville, Succumbs At An Advanced Age.
J. H. Malicoat, a well known old time Civil war veteran of Ellettsville, passed away this afternoon at his home after an illness of several weeks. He would have been 90 had he lived until June. He was born in Tennessee and came to Monroe county when a year old. He is survived by the widow, two sons, H. H. of this city, and Harley of Ellettsville, three daughters, Mrs. Flora Campbell, Detroit, Mrs. Rilla Stevenson, Hammond, and Mrs. Maude Koss, this city. Ten grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren and one great grand child.
Funeral will probably be Tuesday with burial in the M. E. church cemetery.
Mr. Malicoat had been in good health until about two weeks ago and he was taken seriously ill. He then improved only to gradually become weaker and on account of his advanced age the end was not unexpected.
There now remain two veterans in Ellettsville, T. S. Moore and I. U. May, both in good health.
