THE WESTERN STAR, 18 February 1893
Obituary of DAVID COLE
DEATH of DAVID COLE

After a lingering illness of several weeks, the sable winged messenger of death, summoned David Cole to another world, Wednesday morning at about 9 o'clock. His demise resulted from a combined attack of heart
failure and dropsy, having been a sufferer of the former for a number of years.

Mr. Cole was a member of Scott Post, G. A. R. of this city, and served with honor and valor through the greater part of the civil war. His funeral was conducted under the auspices of this order, Thursday at 2 o'clock, from the M. E. church, in this city. Rev. J. A. Woodburn delivered an impressive sermon at the church, after which a large cortege, considering the inclement weather, proceeded to the cemetery where the G. A. R. conducted the last sad rites for the departed comrade.

He is a brother of T. A. Cole, of this city, and, we understand, has a wife and one son in Missouri.

(The Western Star, January 13, 1894 - Deaths for the year, 1893, gives his age 50 years.)
