The Western Star, Coldwater, Comanche County, Kansas, February 5, 1898.Mr. Patrick Pepperd, well known to most of the old time people of the county, died Tuesday night, after an illness that dates back to last fall, since which time he has been gradually failing, but his physician says the immediate cause of his death was heart disease.
DEATH of PATRICK PEPPERD
Mr. Pepperd was born in Lusk, Dublin county, Ireland, in 1834, but when a youth 16 years of age, he left the old country and came to the United States, locating at Cincinnati, Ohio, where he was married in 1860 and resided till the spring of 1884, when he moved with his family to this county.
Nine children were born of this union, and Mrs. Pepperd, and six children survive him.
The funeral took place from the Pepperd home in Powell township Thursday, and a large concourse of relatives and friends followed the remains to the Coldwater cemetery, where they were consigned to rest. We extend sympathy to the family.
