Former Macon Business Man Passes at Highland, N.C.

Frank Coburn, aged 25, formerly one of the best known young business men in Macon, died yesterday morning at Highland, N.C., after having been in feeble health for some months. Everything possible was done to try to save his life, but all in vain. His mother was at the bedside at the time of his death.

The body arrived in Macon at 12:35 o'clock last night, and notice of the funeral arrangements will be found in another column.

Mr. Coburn was a native of Macon and had many friends here. He first started in business as receiving teller at the Fourth National Bank, but the confinement did not agree with him so he entered the insurance business with his uncle, Leon S. Dure, forming the partnership of Dure & Coburn. About five years ago Mr. Coburn left Macon on account of ill health and his death was not a surprise to his relatives and friends.

Mr. Coburn is survived by his mother, Mrs. F. A. Coburn; one sister, Miss Estelle Coburn, and his uncle, Leon S. Dure.

The funeral services will be held this afternoon at 5 o'clock from the residence of his mother, Mrs. F. A. Coburn, 251 Bond street, Rev. Dr. Wells officiating. Interment will be made in Rose Hill Cemetery.
