DEATH OF MRS. EMILY TYSON
We regret to chronicle the death of Mrs. Emily TYSON wife of Mr. William
TYSON of the Starke House. Since the accident of her being violently thrown
from the buggy when her horse ran away Tuesday morning September 26, Mrs.
TYSON suffered greatly. Everything was done both by her physician and her
many friends to allay the pain but the injuries were so deep and severe that
death ended her sufferings Monday night at 9 o'clock. She was buried Wednesday
at 11 o'clock in the Crosby lake cemetery. The funeral services were conducted
at the Starke House Wednesday morning by her pastor Rev. W. H. STEINMEYER
of the Methodist Church of which she was a member. The funeral was attended
by a large number of sympathizing friends. Mrs. TYSON will be greatly missed
as she was very popular and had a host of friends both in Starke and the
surrounding county. She was a good woman, had a warm heart and a kind word
for everyone. The Advocate extends heart felt sympathy to the bereaved husband
