    Dayton Benjamin Coon passed away Wednesday forenoon, May 29, 1929, at the family home in Milton, Wis., following an illness of several months. Mr. Coon was born at Utica, Wis., October 1, 1854. He was the second son of W. H. Coon and Harmina Burdick Coon.
    His sister Ann died in 1878, and his older brother, F. W. Coon, died in 1919. The surviving members of the family are a sister, Mrs. A. B. Stillman, and a brother, J. H. Coon, both living in Milton, Wis.
    Mr. Coon was graduated from Albion (Wis.,) Academy in 1874, and taught a few terms of school at Utica.

Their children are Elam P., Milton Junction, Wis.; Philip L., Beaver Falls, Pa.; and Rachel A., Milton There are three grandchildren: Laurence, Philip, Jr., and Virginia Mary Coon.
    Mr. Coon lived with his family for many years at Utica on the pioneer farm of his father. He moved to Milton Junction 22 years ago, where he purchased a farm, and later moved to Milton.
    He was a man of community spirit and interest, and at one time was a member of the village board.
    At the age of twelve years he was baptized and became a member of the Utica Seventh Day Baptist church. He transferred his membership to the Milton church in May 1913. He was a member of the Brotherhood, always a very regular attendant of the Sabbath school and at the worship of the church. He was a lover of music and sang in the church choir until failing health made it impossible for him to continue. He was a member of the Arion Club and of the Choral Union. He maintained a deep interest in the church and denomination unto the end.
    The funeral service was held from the home and from the church on Sabbath Day, June 1, 1929, and was conducted by Pastor J. L. Skaggs, with Rev. Edwin Shaw assisting. Music was furnished by a Milton College student quartet. Interment was made in Milton cemetery. ...
