Daniel M. Coon 1812-1873
"The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 28, No 45, p 179, Oct. 31, 1872.
In Albion, Wis., on the evening after Fifth day, April 25th, 1873, of congestion of the lungs, Mr. Daniel Coon, aged 60 years. Bro. Coon was born in Petersburgh, N. Y., Nov. 14th, 1812. He went to DeRuyter in about the year 1836, and on Feb. 26th, 1842, was married to Miss Drusilla M. Carpenter, who, with three children, survive to mourn the loss of a faithful husband, and kind father. He came to Albion in the month of August, 1844, while the country was yet, comparatively new. He was one of the earliest members of the Albion Church, in the welfare of which he has always taken an abiding interest. He was also, one of the first members of the Board of Trustees of the Albion Academy, and aided liberally by his means, in the erection of our fine Academic buildings. At the time of his death, he was Treasurer of the Albion Cemetery Association, in whose grounds his remains are now laid. His last sickness was very severe, and but little opportunity was afforded for religious conversation with him, but his dying testimony was, "I am not afraid to die. It is all right." Funeral services were held in the church on the 26th, the pastor officiating. The attendance was large, and the falling tears from many eyes testified to the high esteem in which the departed was held in this community. J. E. N. B.
