She lived with her mother in Liberty Township until her marriage to Mr. Alphonzo Hartz, which occurred September 26, 1894. For three years they lived in Liberty Township. In 1897 they moved to Illinois near Cheneyville. Two children blessed the happy union of Mr. and Mrs. Hartz-a Little girl-Clella, aged three years, and an infant son. their home was one of the happiest, as Ella always tried to make it cheerful and homelike. She died May 5, 1901, aged 25 years, 6 months and 21 days. She leaves a husband, two brothers, five sisters, a mother and a host of relatives and friends to mourn her loss. The grave Mrs. Harry Painter of Attica, Ind., died at her home in that place last Saturday afternoon at 4 o'clock. Deceased was over 63 years of age and leaves a husband and one son, aged 18, and a sister, Mrs. Matilda Reddick of this place. The funeral services were held last Monday at 2 o'clock p.m., Rev. Mr. Ogden, Pastor of the M. E. Church officiating. Mrs. Painter had had the grip and a relapse followed and she rapidly grew worse, not being conscious for twenty-four hours prior to death. She had been a Member of the Baptist Church several years and was a member in good standing at her death. Interment was made in Riverside Cemetery. Mrs. James Cameron, a niece of deceased, and Mrs. Reddick of this place, attended the funeral. Mamie Mary Bowlus Mamie Mary, eldest daughter of Charles and Victoria Bowlus, was born in Rice County, Kan., January 23, 1886, and departed this life Saturday at 6 p.m., May 11, 1901, aged 15 years, 4 month and 12 days. Her disease was Typhoid Pneumonia and she was ill three weeks. She was left motherless in 1893 at which time her father's sister, Mrs. Laura Stewart of this township, Washington, went to Kansas and filled the place of a Mother. In 1896 she was again bereaved by the death of her father at which time the little orphans, four children, three daughters and one son, were left entirely to this noble aunt's tender care. While Mamie never professed her faith in Christ by uniting with any church, she had openly expressed her desire to become a member. She leaves to mourn her loss two sisters. one brother and numerous relations and friends. Her loss is deeply felt by her aunt to whom she was a great comfort and whose home in made sad by her departure. The funeral services were held at the family residence on the barrens on Sunday at 3:30 o'clock, May 12, 1901, Rev George H. Clarke officiating, and interment was made in the West Lebanon Cemetery.
