Mineral Point Man Found Dead In Bed
MINERAL POINT -- Thomas Coad, 73, was found dead in his home here at 5 p. m. Friday when officials entered his rooms after he had been reported missing since Thursday night. No inquest was held. Mr. Coad, whose wife died two weeks ago, had lived here all his life. He is survived by a sister, Mrs. Henry Ivey, of California, and a brother, W. T. Coad, attorney, Chicago.
2. Obituary: Minearal Point Tribune: obituary of Thomas E. Coad on 22 Dec 1927 in Mineral Point, Iowa, WI, United States. 3 Since the last issue of The Tribune, two citizens associated with the life of Mineral Point from the time of their birth have been taken from our midst by death - Samuel Sims, aged 76 years last October, and Thomas E. Coad, aged 73 hears next February.
Messers. Sims and Coad were both natives of Mineral Point and so well known by the old and young of this community for the last half century of years and more, that what might be said of them by the Tribune would seem supernumerary-only a relating of what all know. Each possessed outstanding characteristics, and their natures were more or less singular. What good they accomplished is placed to their credit and in the mysterious beyond their Creator bestows the reward.
Thomas E. Coad was also born in this city in the month of February 1866, according to the information given by him to the writer quite recently. In early life he learned the tinsmith trade. Later, and for a few years only, he was associated with his brother Nick in conducting a drug store in Iowa. His admiration for the place of his birth caused him to return and here he conducted a drug store for a short while, finally returned but remained as one of us. He was a bright student during his school days and it can be said he was ever studious as to the affairs of the world. On the 30th of November his wife was taken from him by death and sixteen days thereafter, he was found dead in his bed (at about 5 p.m. of the 16th inst.)and his body being somewhat rigid, it was interpreted that life had passed out about twelve hours before. He had lived along after his wife's death.
Surviving him are three brothers - M.G.O. Coad of Los Angeles, Cal., Wm. T. Coad of Chicago, John Coad of Colorado, and two sisters, Mrs. John R. Osborne and Mrs. Henry Ivey, both of Bell, Cal. Burial was made in Graceland Tuesday morning, Rev. A.D. Willett in charge. W.T. Coad,, wife and daughter were out from Chicago as attendants.
Thomas married Rachel Ann Beecher, daughter of Joseph Beecher and Melanie Emiline Folley. (Rachel Ann Beecher was born in 1854 in Waldwick, Iowa, WI, United States,4 5 died on 30 Nov 1927 in Mineral Point, Iowa, WI, United States 5 and was buried in Mineral Point: Graceland Cemetery, Iowa, Wisconsin, United States 5.)
