     Patrick Coin Dead
     Patrick Coin died, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Joseph Peterman, at Lisbon, N. Dak., Saturday, March 23 at 4:00 a.m.
     His illness was of short duration, he having been able to walk down town but four days previous to his demise. The cause of his death was pneumonia, and he being such an aged man, his system could not long resist such a disease.
     Mr. Coin was born in the County of Roscommon, Ireland, in the year 1802, consequently had reached the ripe age of 93 when Death summoned him hence. He subsequently emigrated to this county and at different periods of his life lived in New Orleans, St. Louis and in the state of Wisconsin. He came to this county in the early seventies and resided here until last fall, when failing health and old age made it necessary for him to go to Lisbon, N. Dak. to reside with his daughter, Mrs. Joseph Peterman, in order that she might tend his declining years. Her loving task was of short duration for in five short months he had passed from the burdens and cares of this life.
     His remains arrived here Tuesday evening and the funeral obsequies took place Wednesday morning at 10:00 o'clock from the Catholic church, Rev. Father Costello conducting the services.
     His remains were brought here by Mrs. Peterman, and his son Charles came up from St. Louis, and brother and sister together performed the last sad rites to him who had sheltered and protected in their youthful days.
