Mrs. Martha Buttler

We have been given the following obituary of a former lady of this vicinity and one who was our very near neighbor for many years.

Death has made its visit and has taken for its victim Mrs. Martha Buttler.

Martha Young was born December 10, 1844, in Pilot Grove township, Hancock County, Illinois, and departed this life at her home in Sciota, Illinois, April 4, 1919, age 70 years, 4 months, and 24 days. She was united in marriage to John Buttler August 14, l864. To this union there were born ten children. Two died in infancy and one daughter, Mrs. Maria Munson, died February 18, 1899. The other seven children who mourn the loss of a dear mother are: Mrs. Margaret Patterson of Ellsberry, Mo.; Mrs. Emma Hixon, of Wichita, Kansas; Mrs. Rebecca Dillard of Ewing, Mo.; Mrs. Mary Moss of Sciota, Ill.; Frank of Burnside, Ill.; William and James at home. There are also 23 grandchildren, five great grandchildren, the aged husband, four sisters, one brother, many other relatives and a host of friends whose hearts are saddened because of her passing away.

She gave her heart to God and united with the church of Christ at Adrian, Ill. April 13, 1890, and was ever faithful to the church of her choice. She was a kind and devoted wife, a tender and loving mother, a good friend and neighbor to all. During her last illness she had suffered greatly but was never heard to complain, being so patient at all times.

Having been in poor health for several years but not serious until the last four weeks, which time she has been bedfast, but kept up her courage to the last. She expressed her great faith in the Savior and put her trust in Him, believing He whom she had served all the past years would take her home to dwell with her loved ones who had gone on before and who were waiting to greet her on the other shore. She will be sadly missed by the aged husband and in the home of the daughter where she has spent the past winter.

These children and husband have done every thing that love and care and tenderness could do to make mother's last days here on earth bright and happy and they have that to comfort them in their great grief. Funeral services were held in the Methodist church at Burnside Sunday April 6, 1919, at 1 o'clock, conducted by Rev. George P. Lambert of Ferris. Burnside choir furnishing the music with the exception of a solo "The Vacant Chair" which was rendered in a beautiful manner by Mr. Hugh Alton. Burial at McKay cemetery. Those from this vicinity who attended the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. Lem Parker and Mrs. Halley Parker.

Mrs. A. P. Cannon.

Passed away at her home, No. 214 North Scofield St., Jan. 19, 1917. Mrs. Amerial Elizabeth Cannon, aged 86 years, 10 months and 1 day.

Amerial E. Boston, the daughter of George and Mahala Boston, was born in Kentucky, March 18, 1830, and at the age of six years came to this county with her parents, where she lived the remainder of her life, except two years spent in California.

On Oct. 24, 1849, she was married to Alburn Perry Cannon, who died Jan. 28, 1905. To this union were born four children, Dr. Willis Cannon now of San Diego, Calif.; Granvel Cannon of this city; Mrs. Marrila Thackston, who has been the mother's devoted companion and nurse, and Jenny, the beloved daughter whose death so desolated the home, May 24, 1888. She is also survived by a sister, Miss Nancy Boston of this city.

In 1851, Mr. and Mrs. Cannon spent two years in California, where Granvel was born, but returned to this county to continue their residence here to the end of their days.

Mrs. Cannon was a member of the Primitive Baptist church when she lived in the country, but did not affiliate with any church in Carthage. She was a quiet home body, devoted to her family, and little given to going about. But in her quiet, unobtrusive way, she was after all the dominant figure in the home which has so long been blessed by her presence and which now will pass through marked change by her death.

The funeral was held at the residence Sunday afternoon, Rev. J. M. Jones officiating. Interment in Moss Ridge.
