Colonel Lyman Cone Dead

Prepared Oklahoma Exhibits for Chicago World's Fair in 1893

Word was received in the city today of the death at Burrton, Kansas, of Colonel Lyman Cone, father of Mrs. Harry Gray and Jared Cone of this city.

About eight months ago Mr. Cone received a stroke of paralysis from which he did not entirely recover.  Since that time he has been failing rapidly and death has been expected for several weeks.  Mrs. Gray left several weeks ago for Burrton and Mr. Cone and Mr. Gray left last week and were at the bedside at the time death came.

Colonel Cone was well known throughout the territory as well as his own state, having prepared the exhibit for the world's fair held at Chicago in 1893  He also took an active part in the management of various Texas and Kansas fairs.  The name of the deceased is familiar to many residents of Oklahoma and the news of his death brings deep regret.
