Mrs. Hannah A. Coman
Former Resident of Oxford Died at Brisbin, Saturday
Hannah A. Jones, widow of John M. Coman, died Saturday, July 18, at the home of her son, William W. Coman, at Brisbin.
Mrs. Coman was born at Solon, Cortland county, 80 years ago and was the daughter of Rev. A. B. Jones, who was pastor of the Baptist Church in East Pharsalia many years. Her marriage to Mr. Coman occurred in 1854. For a few months she and her husband lived in a western state and then returned to this vicinity, spending a greater portion of their married life in Oxford. Since Mr. Coman's death in 1902, she had resided with her son, when not assisting in the care of the sick. Mrs. Coman united with the Baptist Church in Yale Settlement in Guilford a number of years ago, and on coming to Oxford transferred her membership to the Baptist Church in this village, of which she was a consistent member. She was a woman of a friendly nature and had many friends in town. On June 24 she sustained a shock and since that date had two more, the last one resulting in her death. Besides her son, she is survived by one sister, Mrs. Adeline Flynn of Greene.
The funeral was held at the Baptist Church in this village, Tuesday at 12 o'clock, Rev. R. A. Gates officiating. Burial was in Riverview cemetery.
