BLUE MOUND SUN - March 29, 1895
Mrs. Phebe Nasalroad, whose death was chronicled in these columns last week, was probably the oldest person at the time of her death to be found in eastern Kansas.

Phebe Coffman was born within seven miles of Petersborough, Virginia (now WV), in January, 1794, and was married to George Nasalroad in 1813. She was the last of thirteen children, the last of her family but herself having died thirteen years ago. Mrs. Nasalroad was the mother of eleven children and there are thirty-four grand-children, forty-five great grand-children and two great-great grand-children.

Four of her sons served in the Union army and all came out of the conflict without being wounded. Her oldest son if alive would be 81 years old. Her husband has been dead 43 years and she never married again. She made her burial shroud during the war of the rebellion. The deceased was quite strong for her age until a few years ago, but was a sufferer from a cancer on her nose during the latter years of her life, but retained her facilities remarkable well for a person of her infirmities. She was a consistent church member for over sixty years. Five generations are represented by Mrs. Nasalroad and her descendents.
