DEATH TO AN OLD RESIDENT

Mrs. Minda Lisenby, wife of Abe Lisenby, living northeast of this city, 
died Friday evening, after a lingering illness of dropsy and heart 
trouble. She was 77 years of age.  This announcement will cause much 
genuine sorrow among the older inhabitants of Mt. Vernon. Mrs. Lisenby's 
maiden name was Chastain. Her first husband was Joseph W. Patton and she 
spent the whole of her life in the neighborhood of Mt. Vernon. The union 
with Mr. Patton was blessed with five children, three of whom have 
preceded the mother to the better land. The two children who survive are 
Joe Patton of Kansas City, Missouri and Mrs. Lum McBrian of Dodds 
Township.  Her first husband having died in the 80's, she was united in 
marriage to Abe Lisenby about 1890.  She was converted in early life and 
united with the Baptist church.  The funeral services were held at East 
Salem, Sunday morning at 9 o'clock and the internment was at Salem 
cemetery.
