BAUGHMAN, Mrs. Harry C.

April 28 1872 - April 13, 1905

Georgia Barnes Wray Baughman

Baughman - Mrs. Harry C. Baughman who was Miss Georgia Barnes Wray, of this place died at her home near Hustonville at 11:30 last night of a complication of troubles. Funeral services will be held at the home at 1:30 tomorrow, Saturday afternoon, by Rev. G. W. Mills. Interment in Buffalo cemetery about 4. A more extended notice of this excellent woman will appear next issue.

Tuesday, April 18, 1905 - Interior Journal

Baughman: Death is always sad, but especially is it so when it comes to a young wife and mother who had so much to live for as did Mrs. Harry C. Baughman, whose soul took flight to the mansions above at 11:30 Thursday night, a mention of which appeared in our last issue. The illness of the splendid woman begun some three weeks ago and little did those who are now crushed by her death think it would prove fatal, but death loves a shining mark and He needed her in His Heavenly Home and called her hence. Conscious up to almost the very last, Mrs. Baughman made a noble fight against the grim reaper, frequently saying: " I must not die and leave my husband and children." How thoughtful, even in the very face of death, was this devoted wife and tender mother!  May the rich reward she now receives assuage the grief of those who so reluctantly gave her up. Mrs. Baughman, who was Miss Georgia Barnes Wray, was born April 28, 1872 and is survived by a husband and two little ones, Earl and James, aged five and two, respectively.  Her mother, Mrs. Mary Wray, is also left to mourn the loss of a loving, dutiful daughter, while the sisters and brother, who share deeply in the loss are, Mrs. I. M Bruce, Miss Nettie Wray and Mr. Homer C. Wray. When only 14 Mrs. Baughman united with the Presbyterian church and had since been an active member.

Funeral services were held at her late home near Hustonville by Rev G. W. Mills Saturday afternoon, after which the remains were brought here and laid away in Buffalo Cemetery. Several of her favorite songs were beautifully and feelingly sung by Mesdames J. G. Carpenter and A. G. Huffman and Rev. Gilbert Glass and Mr. W. H. Wearen, (as printed)  Rev. Glass offered an appropriate prayer and then the snow white  casket, which held all that was mortal of the Godly young woman, was hidden from view forever. An immense crowd attended the funeral services and flowers in profusion showed to some extent how she was loved and esteemed. May He who tempers the wind to the shorn lamb make provision for the motherless little boy and comfort the husband, mother, sisters and brother in their dark hour of sorrow.

CARSON, Judge W. R.

William Ransom Carson

1827 - 1905

Judge W. R. Carson, known by almost every man, woman and child in this county, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. S. Porter Stagg, in Fayette Co., Wednesday evening at 7:30, aged 78. The judge had been a resident of Stanford for many years until he removed to Fayette a year ago. He was in feeble health when he left and many of his friends predicted that they would not see him alive again. He became stronger after a short sojourn with his daughter, however, and until the illness that caused his death came, he suffered very little.

Judge Carson was magistrate and police judge for 38 years, both of which offices he filled with credit. For years he did saddler and harness business here and was reasonably successful in it. He was an unusually well posted man on current events and a great reader.

He loved Stanford and in his palmier days he did much for its advancement. A Trustee of Stanford Female College, her worked hard for its furtherance.

Judge Carson married Miss Permelia Dodd, who preceded him to the grave 23 years. He is survived by five children, Mesdames A. A. Warren of Middlesboro, J. E. Portman of this place, S. P Stagg, of Fayette, Mr. James T. Carson, of Louisville, and Charles C. Carson of Liberty, and in their loss of a kind and indulgent father they have much sympathy. The remains were brought here last night and at 10:30 this morning they will be interred in

Buffalo Cemetery. Rev. P. J. Ross will pray and make a few remarks at the grave.

HOCKER, Joseph F.

1846 - 1905

HOCKER - Mr. Joseph F. Hocker, a mention of whose death appeared in our Tuesday's paper, was 58 years old and he left a widow, who was Miss Mary E. Riley, and six children, viz: Mesdames W. O. Speed, of this place, D. S. McKinney of Lafollette, Tenn., and W. G. Blankenship, of Burgin, and Messrs. Clarence Hocker, of St. Louis, James C. Hocker of Livingston, and Richard Hocker, of Pittsburg. Mr. Hocker's home was at Pittsburg, and he came to the home of his daughter, Mrs. W. O. Speed, eight weeks ago for medical treatment, but a kidney trouble had gotten in its work and constant medical attention and careful nursing were of no avail and the end came peacefully at 1:30 Tuesday morning, surrounded by as devoted a wife and children as ever lived. Rev.

P. J. Ross preached a splendid funeral sermon at Mr. Speed's Wednesday morning after which the remains were gently laid to rest in Buffalo Cemetery. Mr. Hocker was a druggist at McKinney for 15 years and moved from that place to Junction City, where he was agent for an express company for a long time. He was a member of the Methodist church and an exceedingly kind-hearted, clever man. His popularity was shown by the large number of friends who came from a distance to pay their last respects to him. Much sympathy is felt for the widow and children in their irreparable loss.

WARREN, Mrs. Susan Vance

January 22, 1820 - April 02, 1905

On Sunday, April 2nd, in the calm of a beautiful Spring afternoon, the spirit of Mrs. Susan Vance Warren was summoned back to her Creator. Seized with a severe cold about 10 days previously, from the beginning her symptoms were alarming and her family and friends were fearful that, enfeebled by years, she could not throw off  the attack. On Sunday morning she fell into a gentle sleep, and so noiselessly did the call from the Great Beyond come, that ever those who watched by her bed scarcely knew when her soul took flight.

Mrs. Warren was born Jan. 22, 1820 in Stanford, and within a stone's throw of the house in which she died. Her ancestors were Virginians, her grandfather having moved to this State from Loudon County, Va, at the close of the 18th century. They  were men of prominence and influence in the community. Her uncle, Michael Davidson, being a captain of a company of volunteers in the war of 1812, and another uncle, James Davidson, was a colonel of the volunteer regiment in the same war.

In 1837 she was united in marriage with Hamilton Jenkins, of this county, who died in 1839. Several years later she married Granville Purdom. To them were born four children, Thomas, George, Robert and Bettie, the first two dying in early manhood. Mr. Purdom having died in 1852, his widow married Wm. Warren, who proceeded her to the grave some 30 years.

Her only daughter, Bettie, who married I. M. Bruce, of this place, died in 1891. On her was centered all the wealth of a mother's affection, and the shadow of this loss never lifted from off her heart. Mrs. Bruce left one child, Mary, who was a comfort of Mrs. Warren's old age, and upon whom she lavished the measureless love of both mother and grandmother. In her declining years, Mrs. Warren lived with her son-in-law, Mr. Bruce, and he and his wife were unfailing in kind and thoughtful attention.

With the exception of a short period spent in Springfield, Ky., Mrs. Warren lived in Stanford her whole life, and her knowledge of its early history was unequalled by anyone. Possessed of a splendid memory and endowed with clear expression in speech, it was indeed a treat to sit in her presence and listen to her relate incidents of Stanford's early days, and describe citizens the prominent in the community.

For many years she kept hotel here and the "Warren House" and its proprietress are still affectionately remembered by those who enjoy the privilege of boarding there. In fact, it is a strong tribute to Mrs. Warren's character that those who lived in the same house with her 40 years ago were among her staunchest friends in the closing years of her life.

[Susan M. Warren, 1820 - 1905, is buried next to William R. Warren (b. 07/31/1831 - blank) at Buffalo Springs Cemetery]
