Daily Missouri Republican, St. Louis MO - August 1 1849

On Sunday, July 21d at his residence near Herculaneum, Jefferson county, Mo., of the pestilence now prevailing, Dr. Lawson COOLEY, in the 47th year of his age, formerly of Harford county, Maryland. Baltimore papers please copy. This notice will grieve the hearts of many, and none is more grieved than the writer of this, who knew the deceased well, and loved him tenderly. Dr. COOLEY had lived in the neighborhood where he died for fifteen years, and has not departed without leaving a memorial behind him. As a citizen he was highly esteemed, as a neighbor, greatly beloved, as a friend tenderly cherished, as a husband and parent, he had the devoted attachment of those who were allied to him in those tender relationships, and as a physician, his work of charity among the poor will be ever remembered. The writer of this esteemed it a privilege to have been with him in his sickness and death, and to have followed his body in its burial. May Gods blessing rest upon his bereaved and weeping household.
