Mrs. Rebecca Coffey passed away
at her home on Sunday, March 11,
1906 at the age of 78 years, 3
months and 11 days.

Mrs. Coffey had been in failing
health for many months, but was
able to perform her household
duties until about three weeks ago
when she was stricken with a brain
trouble. Which overcame her
strength and death came as a
relief.

Mrs. Coffey and her aged husband
have been residents of the Frankfort
communuity for many years and
have always been respected and
honored by all who knew them.

Born into slavery in the south Mrs.
Coffey had but few advantages
accorded to her race. Yet she made
the best of her surroundings.

Funeral services were held at the
home at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday,
March 13, 1906.
