Obituary of Jerome B. Coyle, Charlestown, West Virginia.

Jerome B. Coyle died at his home, near Charlestown, W. Va., March 15, 1916, aged seventy-two years. He was born in Berkeley County, Va., (now West Virginia), October 21, 1843, but had been a resident of Jefferson County since early manhood.

In 1862, when a lad of eightteen years, he volunteered in Company A, 12th Virginia Cavalry, General Rosser's brigade, and served in the great strife for Southern independence from Fredericksburg to Appomattox. His comrades have said he was a brave and dutiful soldier on many hard-fought fields. Since the war he had been a farmer and was highly repsected by his friends and neighbors. He is survivied by one daughter, Miss Hallie Coyle.

[Tribute by his friends and comrade, H. T. Miley.]
