* Obituary * A Prominent Citizen And A Good Man Gone to His Reward Died at his home in Trigg county on the 19th instant of old age and a complication of disease, Mr. William Cunningham in the 79th year of his age. Born in Trigg county on the 25th of December, 1822, he had spent his life at the old home but a short distance from his birth-place. A descendant from one of the oldest and most extensive families in the county, he maintained his respectability to the hour of his death, and died bequeathing to his posterity a name deserving of a bright remembrance. He was married in 1848 to the daughter of Edmund Lancaster, and was the father of ten children, nine of whom are still living. Supt. Cunningham, of this place, being one of them. He was an indulgent parent, a good neighbor, and a fast friend, and his death will create a vacuum in his old neighborhood that will require years to fill. (The Cadiz Record, June 19, 1901, Cadiz, Kentucky)
