Looking Back By Mike Lakin 70 Years Ago - April 1941 A somewhat correction was printed as to the last Civil War soldier living in Logan County. In July 1940 the paper reported that the passing of John C "Uncle Billy" Mier marked the death of the last Civil War soldier. The Mt Pulaski resident died at 99. Charles Coates, St. of Lake Fork cel- ebrated his 93-birthday. Mr. Coates was, in fact, the last Civil War veteran and the last surviving member of the Logan County GAR. Mr. Coates enlisted in the Union Army at 16 in 1863 in Ohio. He recalled the worst battle he was in that took place when John Morgan's Raiders attacked Marietta and Nelson, Ohio. Several men in his unit engaged the enemy, many died. Mr. Coates came to Logan County after the war in 1867 at the age of 20 and settled in Lake Fork. On his 93-birthday he was enjoying good health. Mt Pulaski Telephone was install- ing a new Stromberg-Carlson tele- phone switchboard to better serve its 650-customers. The new switchboard replaced the 1897 switchboard that had served the local telephone system for 44-years. Money was bng raised in the county to help lay for a $234,000 improvement to the Deaconess Hos- pital in Lincoln. The improvements would include making the hospital a 90-bed facility. Almost doubling the size of the hospital. W T Lushbaugh died at the age of 66. He was a jeweler as was his father, Harmon. His death marked the end of the family line of jewelers that dated back to the mid 1800s in Mt Pulaski. Mt.
