Well Known Colored Man Dead

Coleman McElrath, one of the best known colored men of Bluefield, died Saturday. His funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, and was attended by the colored Masonic fraternity and the order of True Reformers. The deceased had been for many years employed by the railroad company, and in the days before there were any hospitals here nursed many who had been injured on the railroad.
