Bisbee Daily Review October 13, 1917
The many friends of Charles Cunningham of the Philadelphia hotel will regret to hear that he is seriously ill at his home in that place. He was stricken with a stroke of paralysis some time during Thursday night while we was asleep, and he was not discovered until yesterday morning when his sister went to call him. His left side is entirely paralyzed. On account of his age there is not much hope held out for his recovery. Mr. Cunningham is one of the pioneers of Southern Arizona, and has a host of friends all over the Southwest that hope for the best.

Death Overtakes Prominent Man of Warren District
Charles P. Cunningham, for over thirty-five years a resident of Bisbee andranked among the Warren district's most prominent citizens, died at his home this morning at 12:30 o'clock. Mr. Cunningham suffered a stroke of paralysis about a week ago. Complications set in, resulting in the congestion of his left lung. No Arrangements have been made for his interment.
Surviving Mr. Cunningham are: one brother,now in Philadelphia, and two sisters, both of whom were at the bedside when the end came. They are Miss Lizzie Cunningham and Mrs. Annie Connors.
In the death of Charlie Cunningham the city of Bisbee loses one of its best known and loved men. For thirty-five years he has been a resident of the camp, seeing it first when it was in its infancy and still striving for its betterment when it had grown to the community it now is. For many years he has been the proprietor of the Philadelphia hotel.
Charlie Cunningham has been known for his sterling integrity, which has manifested itself, oftimes, in the face of peril. During his late years he served on the city council of Bisbee making a record for his activity and interest in the welfare of the community.
