    • Elijah COOMBE, one of the old residents of Macon county, died at 9:30 Sunday morning at the family residence, four miles southeast of the city. His death was caused by organic heart trouble and was rather sudden. He had been in bad health for about ten weeks, but his condition was not regarded as critical until Sunday morning. At that time he began sinking rapidly, and it was seen that his hours were numbered.

      Mr. COOMBE had lived many years in Macon county and was highly respected. He is survived by his wife and one son, William E. COOMBE, who is now engaged in the real estate business in Decatur. He is also survived by one sister, who lives in Oklahoma, and one brother, Joseph COOMBE, whose home is Arcola.

He was in the 116th Illinois Infantry and remained in the service during the war. Shortly after the close of the war, John and Elijah married. Elijah moved to Pettus County, Missouri, the former remaining in Macon County, Illinois. My brother Elijah has one son, William E; Elijah died at age 62". [1]
