Correspondence by Mountain Ralph
In the death of Thos. Coakley this community loses one of its mainstays, and the poor people one of their best friends, ever ready to lend a helping hand to the worthy, industrious, honest toiler. His last days were his best days. He was a devout member of the United Baptist church and always considerate in his word. He made no promises but what he fulfilled it in the power of man to do so. A large concourse of friends and relatives followed his remains to their last resting place, a very beautiful spot overlooking the placid little stream of Little Brush Creek, where his remains were lowered by tender and loving friends on the 4th inst.
