Newport Hoosier State, Wednesday, October 12, 1881

Charles Taylor, of Dana, this county, departed this life on Saturday night at half past 8 o'clock, October 8, 1881, aged 26 years. He was united in marriage 3 years ago to Miss Mary Matthews of Arcola, IL. In his death, she loses an affectionate and loving husband, his mother a dutiful son, his brothers and sisters a kind brother. His death has cast a gloom over our village that cannot be removed only by time. Charley was congenial, kind, and warm hearted, and his early death is sadly lamented by his relatives and numerous friends. Rev. Griffith preached his funeral at 11 o'clock on last Sabbath. He had conversed with him the evening of his death; he said he was not afraid to die. After the funeral, his remains were followed to the Helt's Prairie Cemetery and gently laid away in the silent city of the dead.

Miss Mary Maloney Taylor was born June 17, 1840 and departed this life July 30, 1908, being 68 years, 1 month and 13 days of age. The family group numbered eleven, six brothers and five sisters. There are now two brothers and two sisters living. Miss Taylor was born in Vermillion county, spent a good part of her life in the county, though she lived several years in Eaton, O.. There she nursed her stepmother through her last sickness, her own mother dying when Mary was but a babe four months old. She tenderly cared for her father and nursed him through his last sickness; he died in Dana, Indiana. Mary was a help and comfort to many in their sickness. She tenderly cared for Mrs. Emily White in her last days on earth.

Miss Mary was for years identified with the W.R.C. of Eaton, O.. and will always be remembered for her labor of love and charity.

She was very much attached to her nephew, Rev. Chas. Taylor, an old veteran, and present with us today.

Miss Mary was in her early life identified with the Baptist church, but for the last fifteen years has been a member of the Presbyterian church. She had lived alone for almost thirteen years, and passed away at home.

She was greatly afflicted with nervous trouble and suffered greatly during the last two years. Her death was very peaceful, her faith triumphant.

As she in her life ministered to others, so in return kind hands ministered to her wants.

Her funeral was held in the Presbyterian church; her former pastor, Rev. S.W. Patterson, preaching the sermon from the 42nd Psalm: "Why thou in God; for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

Mrs. Minerva Taylor, wife of Sanford Taylor of Dana, died on November 25, 1887, after patiently suffering for many months the terrible pains of a disease (cancer) which relentlessly holds its victim until the last life chord is snapped. Her age was a little over 34 years, having been born June 23, 1853. Mrs. Taylor was ready and willing to go. Her greatest regret was leaving her dear little daughter Ora Taylor, to whom she was most tenderly attached. She leaves many warm friends who will not soon forget her. How patiently she bore her afflictions and how calmly she met death.

Newport Hoosier State, Wednesday, May 31, 1899

The beautiful life of Mrs. Missouri Taylor was closed on Wednesday morning, May 24, 1899, at her home in Dana. Mrs. Taylor was born on the farm of her parents, James W. and Sarah E. Andrews, near Toronto, IN, October 22, 1855. Her young life was singularly beautiful. Everybody was a staunch friend of the dear young girl. Arriving at the threshold of young womanhood, she united with the Dana Baptist Church and was a regular in its support. While the health of this good woman would not permit her regular attendance, she always had an encouraging word for her pastor and was ever ready to contribute to the advancement of the interests of the church.

She was united in marriage November 29, 1876 to John M. Taylor. Her marriage vows were held sacred and without hesitancy we say a more devoted couple never lived.

She was fully prepared for the dissolution of all earthly ties, and recognizing the uncertainty of life, she had made with her own hands her burial robe, and Mr. Taylor found since her death, a goodly sum of money which she had saved to defray her funeral expenses and to erect a monument.

The funeral exercises were held at the Baptist Church Friday morning, conducted by Rev. Wright and Rev. Kendall. The house was crowded to its utmost by loving friends as a testimonial of the high esteem in which she was held. Through the downpour of rain, hundreds of friends accompanied the remains to Wesley Chapel where the impressive ritual service of the Rebekahs of St. Bernice, IN, of which Mrs. Taylor was a devoted member, was observed.

Aged Lady Dead

Mrs. Mary H. Temple died Tuesday, just after noon at the home of her daughter (Mrs.) William Fitzgerald, in Dana, at the age of 81 years, 7 months, and 24 days.

Mary Helen Derthick was the daughter of Otis and Mary Derthick and was born in Dunkirk, New York, July 12, 1830. She came with her parents when twelve years of age by way of St. Lawrence river and the great lakes to Chicago, and the family located at Belvidere, not far from Chicago, where they lived for three years, then moving to what was later known as the old Midway neighborhood, southeast of Bono.

One of the vivid recollections of her childhood was the trip from New York to Illinois, when their vessel, the old fashioned sailing vessel of those days was wrecked by a storm on Lake Erie, where they lay for nearly three weeks waiting to be picked up and carried to their destination.

She was a member of the Baptist Church and was the last of the thirteen orignal members of Hiddle's Prarie Baptist Church, organized at Bono, many years ago, and moved her membership to Dana, when that church was organized. She was faithful to her church and kept up her work and her interest so long as able to attend, and was a member of the Baptist Mission Circle at the time of her death.

She was married to George H. Temple, Feb. 2, 1854, and to this union eight children were born, four boys and four girls; one boy and one girl dying in infancy; one son, Nelson, and daughter, Elva, dying within a year of each other in 1894 and 1895. The husband dying in 1891. One son and three daughters are still living - Carl H. (Mrs.) Addie Hays (Mrs.) George Elder, and Mrs. Anna Fitzgerald.

The Temple family have lived near or in Dana, since their marriage. They went to housekeeping immediately after marriage on the Temple farm, and about twenty-two years ago moved to town and built the house where Mrs. Temple died.

Her last illness began August 9th, last year and after a two weeks illness was able to sit up but was never able to walk. She was again taken down on Christmas day and after that time was never able to leave her bed. She was carefully looked after during her illness by her daughters and son assisted by the neighbors and many loving friends -- for all loved her.

Funeral services will be held Thursday afternoon at one o'clock from the late home, conducted by Rev. Kendall, her former pastor, and burial will follow at Bono cemetery where her body will be laid to rest, beside her husband and daughter.

She united with the Tennessee Baptist Church in February 1877 for which she remained and earnest and faithful member.
