S. D. Cole

It is with sincere regret that we this morning announce the death of S. D. Cole, Esq., one of the oldest and most respected citizens of this county.  He died at 1 o'clock p.m. yesterday, at his residence near Washington church, in the 3d civil district.  He had been sick for several weeks, and his condition was considered critical from the beginning.  His disease was dropsy of the chest.  The deceased had been for many years a Justice of the Peace, and was universally beloved and esteemed.  His moral character was without spot or blemish.  He was an active and consistent member of the Presbyterian Church, and Ruling Elder in that Church.  As a neighbor he was always kind and obliging, and as a Christian gentleman, without reproach.  He leaves a wife and a large family of children to mourn his loss.  Source: "Obituary," Knoxville Weekly Chronicle, 22 April 1874, page 5, digital images, Chronicling America ( : accessed 17 July 2018).
