THE WESTERN STAR, 25 February 1893
Obituary of JOHN CARSON
The spirit of John Carson winged its way to that bourne from whence no traveler has ever returned on Tuesday morning, February 21st. For the past three months he has laid at the home of his father, "Uncle Andy" Carson, in the north part of town, slowly succumbing tot he dread ravages of consumption, and for a number of weeks it has been known that his recovery was most an impossibility and to them aware of this fact, this announcement will cause no surprise.

John Carson has been a resident of Coldwater almost from the foundation of the town, and was always regarded as on eof the healthy, robust young colored men of the place, and ill thought anyone that so soon would the Great Destropyer call him hence. The funeral services were held at the M. E. church, Wednesdy afternoon, where Rev. Woodburn preached a touching sermon, accompanied with a few selections by the choir. After the services a large concourse followed the remains to their last resting place in the cemetery, east of town.
(The Western Star, January 13, 1894 - Deaths for the year 1893, gives his age 23 years.)
