Thompson Cool

March 14, 1893

Co. B - 19th IA Inf.


The AGED portion of this headstone appears to be not engraved. A tentative DOB year for Thompson has been estimated as about 1840; presumably based on his being about 48 years of age according to his March 21, 1889 marriage record to his second wife Martha Jane Powell Weatherly (later possibly remarried to a "Mr. Hawkins"). His DOB and location were not recorded on his death record; no will/probate/obituary has been located or filed in Jefferson county as far as is known.

A child of Thompson and Martha is also buried on this same plot, Ella Cool (April 30, 1892 - March 8, 1893); she is without a headstone or other inscription, however.

It might be noted that Thompson and Elle died just a few days apart. It is possible that double grief overcame the posting of death notices or obituaries for either by the family and friends.
