Edinburg, April 2 - Francis M. Coy, one of 
Edinburg's oldest citizens, passed away 
Monday evening at 5:10 at the home of his 
daughter, Mrs. John Garrison, on South 
Walnut Street, after an extended illness.  
He would have been 90 years old had he 
lived until April 16.
      The deceased had cared for many lawns 
during the past several years, and only last 
summer, after an illness, he borrowed a lawn 
mower and attempted to cut the grass in the 
town park.
      He was preceded in death by his wife, 
who died June 26, 1891.  He is survived 
by the daughter, with whom he had made 
his home since the death of his wife; two 
grandchildren, Merle Garrison of Edinburg 
and Emory Garrison of Franklin, and two 
great grandchildren, Betty and Bobby Garrison.
      Friends may call at the Farr & Gosney 
chapel this evening from 7 to 9 o'clock and 
at the home Wednesday morning, after 9 
o'clock until time for the services, which 
will be held Wednesday afternoon at the 
New Bethel Church at 2:30.  Interment 
will be in the church cemetery.
