Carrollton Gazette--Carrollton, IL. Nov. 17, 1893

Miss Hattie Meek died at the home of her mother in Sullivan, Mo., with her mother's family, on Nov. l0, of typhoid fever. She had been ill about six weeks. She was born in Greene County, Ill. Feb. 23, 1869. She moved to Sullivan with her mother's family Apr. 1891. In the short time she lived here she formed some strong friendships and her amicable quiet life will be missed in the circle of her acquaintances. The remains were taken to Carrollton, her old home, for interment. A number of Knights of Pythias, with other friends, arranged the preparations and pall bearers were selected from the members of the order to bear the casket with the remains to the 5 o'clock train Saturday morning. The mother, worn out from watching by her bedside, was unable to follow the remains to their last resting place, and her sister, Mrs. Caldwell, who is just recovering from an attack of fever, was also unable to go. Senator S. W. Wright and E. A. McKenzie, together with her brother, J. H. Meek and W. A. Caldwell, went in the funeral train. Services were held Sunday at 2 p.m. at the old homestead near Carrollton, the home of her brother, R. A. Meek. Burial was in Hopewell Cemetery.
