Old Soldier Passes Away at His Home Near Salvisa
Mr. Jouett McCoun, one of the most prominent men of the Providence neighborhood, died last Thursday evening of a complication of diseases, after a lingering illness. His funeral took place at New Providence Church on Saturday afternoon, conducted by Rev. Harvey Glass, and the remains were interred in the Providence Cemetery. Mr. McCoun was a splendid gentleman and one of the most prosperous farmers of that section of the county. He was a member of Morgan’s command during the Civil War, and on the last raid of that famous Confederate through Kentucky in 1864, Mr. McCoun was captured at Cynthiana and was held a prisoner at Rock Island until the close of the war. He was a native of the county and has always been held in the highest esteem. He leaves a wife and three daughters, Misses Ora and Mabel McCoun, and Mrs. Dulin, of Shelbyville. The pall bearers were Dr. J. W. Powell, Dr. J. P. Lapsley and Messrs. George Forsythe, Eb. Adams, James Armstrong and Henry McGee.
