Mrs. Kate Odle died at her home in this place Friday night of consumption. The funeral services conducted by Rev. Myers were held at 2 p.m., Sunday, and the remains were laid to rest in Hillside Cemetery. James Aaron Hunter was born in Madison County, Ohio, March 17th, 1824, and died at the home of his only surviving child and son, Monroe Hunter, in this place Tuesday morning, September 25th, 1894, aged 70 years, 6 months and one day. He had been a constant sufferer for some time past from Bright's disease and this with heart trouble told of late very rapidly upon him in his frail condition. Mr. Hunter was one of the paoneers of Warrne County, coming to Indiana in the fall of 1845, when he entered a half section of land in East Liberty Township where he resided for the greater portion of his life. In the spring of the year 1849, he was united in marriage to Miss Leticia Brier with whom he lived happily until her death in August of 1889. To them Montoe was left to care for his father in his declining years. In the spring of 1891, Mr. Hunter moved with his son Monroe to Williamsport where he made his home until his death on Tuesday of last week. Mr. Hunter was a good neighbor, a true and good citizen, always most positive and careful in keeping of word and agreement and died most highly respected by all. The funeral services conducted by the Rev. Myers were held from the residence in this place at 2 o'clock Wednesday afternoon, after which the remains followed by a large concourse of friends were laid to rest after a life of hardship and toil in Hillside cemetery. Bertie Bell Davis was born in Warren County, Ind., Dec 12, 1875. When less than a year old, her father died, and when about nine years old, her mother died. Since that time she had made her home with her grandmother Davis in Boswell. The deceased was converted and became a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Feb. 1893, and departed this life Sept. 26th, 1894, in peace. She left to mourn her loss one brother, three half brother, a grandmother, with many near relatives and loved ones to think of her pure life. She was aged 18 years, 9 months and 14 days. In the death of Miss Mary Lloyd, a striking example of the pathetic side of life is afforded. For years Miss Loyd has been the mainstay and comfort of her aged parents, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Lloyd. She was endeared to them by long years of patient toil and constant companionship. None who did not know her can realize what her loss is to the sorrowing parents. It was in accordance with the eternal fitness of things that they should have preceded her to the tomb, but life is uncertan and the daughter was first called to the home of rest.
