Child of Henry Coatney, 1896
Cherokee Herald (Cherokee Co. NC) Tuesday, June 23, 1896:
"Mr. Henry Coatney, who is working on the court house, of Atlanta, received a telegram last Wednesday from his wife, who was visiting at Knoxville [Tennessee], that their little child was dead. It was a crushing blow to the fond father, for he did not know that his baby was even sick. Its death was sudden, but we did not learn the cause. Mr. Coatney left the same morning for Knoxville."
