Abraham P. Coons, 85, Civil War veteran, died at his home on South Seventh St. Wednesday morning as a result of injuries sustained in a fall early in December.

He suffered a fractured hip in the accident and failed to respond to treatment.

Born in Indiana in 1844, Mr. Coons came to McKenzie, N. D. from that state in 1900, moving to Bismarck seven years later.

He served with the forces of the Union army during the war of the rebellion, enlisting in the 130th regiment of Indiana Infantry Feb. 28, 1864. He received his honorable discharge June 8, 1865. While no data is available as to what engagements he fought in, friends said that he engaged in a number of famous battles.

Coons was married three times and Elizabeth Coons, his third wife, is left.

He leaves five sons, three daughters, 26 grandchildren, and four great grandchildren.

The sons are Wilbert, Detroit, Mich.; Grover, Seattle, Wash.; Thomas, Watsonville, Calif.; Edward, Phillipsburg, Mo, and Samuel, Detroit, Mich. His daughters are Rosie and Mary, Seattle, and Georgie, Bismarck.

Funeral services have been tentatively set for 2 o’clock Saturday afternoon with Rev. F. E. Logee, pastor of the First Presbyterian church of Bismarck officiating.

The Daughters of Union Veterans and the Women’s Relief Corps will attend the funeral in a body and a bugler and a firing squad from Fort Lincoln will participate in the last rites.

Interment will be made in the McKenzie cemetery.
