THE WESTERN STAR, 17 April 1908

The people of Coldwater were shocked on Wednesday of this week to learn of the sudden death of Hollie E. McCune, which occurred at 10:45 a.m. on that day in Wichita at the home of his brother, Frank. Death resulted from an attack of pneumonia fever of only about a week's duration. The body was brought to Coldwater yesterday and plans have been completed to
hold the funeral services at the Presbyterian church at 2 p.m. today. The pastor, Rev. W. L. Roberts, will have charge of the services, after which interment will be made in the Coldwater cemetery.

Hollie Earl McCune was born on a farm about 5 miles north of Coldwater on July 4, 1885. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. E. McCune, were among Comanche co's early settlers. Hollie, therefore, had lived here all his
life. He had a wide circle of friends, all of whom now feel a keen sense of sorrow and bereavement because of the untimely death of this promising young man. The father and mother, four brothers and two sisters survive and now mourn because of the loss of a loving son and
brother. The brothers are: John McCune of Pratt, R. E. and F. G. McCune of Wichita and Pearl McCune of Kansas City, Kans. The sisters are, Mrs. J. L. Murray of this city and Mrs. H. B. Prather of Protection.
