    Mrs. Marion Colegrove Coon, the daughter of David and Eunice Colegrove, was born at Wirt, New York, January 11, 1845, and died at Milton, Wisconsin, Monday morning, August 16, 1926, at the age of 81 years, 7 months, and 5 days.
    Mrs. Coon was the second of four sisters: Lorinda Colegrove, Mrs. M. E. Bigelow, who died but five months ago, and Mrs. Teresa Lawton, of New Auburn, Minnesota, who survives the other three.
    Mrs. Coon moved with her parents to Utica, Wis., when but seven years of age, and grew up to young womanhood while a resident of this place. She attended the common school and later Albion Academy. She was baptized at the age of sixteen and became a member of the Utica Seventh Day Baptist church.
    On July 12, 1862, she was married to Mr. George G. Coon and moved with him in a covered wagon to Transit, Freeborn County, Minnesota, during the period when the early settlers were having trouble with the Indians. There were seven children from this union: Walter, Eunice, Nettie, and Ida, who died in early childhood, and Durwood, Nellie, and Minnie, who with the devoted husband were at her bedside during her last hours.
    After living in several Minnesota communities, Mr. and Mrs. Coon moved to New Auburn, Minn., where they resided on their farm more than forty years. In 1915 they moved to Milton, but spent the winters of 1916 and 1917 in Florida. In 1922 they rented their village home and went to live with their daughter, Mrs. Byron E. Coon near Milton, from whence Mrs. Coon passed on peacefully to the heavenly home Monday morning.
    The service was conducted at the home of Byron E. Coon, Wednesday afternoon, at 2 o'clock. Out of town attendants were: Mr. and Mrs. George Coon of New Auburn, Wisconsin, D. L. Coon of Minneapolis, Mrs. Teresa Lawton and son Wyman of New Auburn, Minn., Mrs. O. L. Coon, Mrs. Emerson, and Mrs. Palmeter of Albion, and Roy Coon of Stoughton.
