Coyne Obituaries



From a copy of a card, received from Kathy Curtacci Thompson.

In affectionate remembrance of Francis William, the beloved son of John and Ellen Cohan, who died March 30, 1884, aged 14 months, and was this day interred at Stoneyroyd Cemetery.


With one so young ‘twas hard to part
It almost broke his parents heart:
But cease to morn that he is dead
His happy soul to Heaven has fled.

I was unto my parents dear
A flower sweet and good:
But death, you see, has called on me,
And plucked me in the bud.

Dry up your tears, pray shed no more
Because your son is gone before;
In love he lived, in peace he died
His life was asked, but was denied.


Lee’s Buildings, Whitehall April 2, 1884
With the family’s kind regards.
