    The subject of this sketch was born at Hartsville, N. Y., Sept. 22, 1832, and died March 5, 1907, at his home in Milton, aged 74 years, 5 months and 11 days. He was the son of Oliver Coon and was the sixth child in a family of eight or nine children. In 1844 he moved with the family to Albion. A few years later he became a Christian and was with a score or more baptized by Eld. Stillman Coon in Clear Lake in midwinter. In 1856 he was married to Miss Janette Crandall, daughter of Stanton Crandall of Utica. They lived on a farm near Utica where four children were born unto them. The oldest, Elton J. Coon, died when about a year old. Mrs. Ellen Coon Burdick resides in California. Byron E. Coon is an honored farmer here, while the youngest, Mrs. Leo Coon Whitford, is at present living with the bereaved widow. In the church, in the community, in the home, Mr. Coon was a man among men.

This uniting of the Coon and Crandall families made the relatives more numerous, probably than any other family in this section of the state.
