1890 - 1905
Goshen - Jessie Breedlove, son of Mr. and
Mrs. John Breedlove, who had been confined to his bed for over two months,
breathed his last on Sunday Morning. Although his death had been
expected for some time, it came as a shock to his relatives and friends. Constant medical attention and careful nursing were of no avail. He never wanted for anything that loving hands could
do for him. All who knew him, loved him. He was a favorite with all his teachers and playmates. He was laid to rest in Goshen cemetery Monday in the presence of a large number of friends
and sorrowing relatives. His teacher with all her pupils attended the interment and when the snow white casket, which held all that was mortal of dear Jessie, was hidden from view, there was
scarcely a dry eye. Being only 15 years old, life seemed full of promise and we can't see why he was taken. But God knoweth why. We wish to say to the broken-hearted father and mother
that it won't be long until you will meet your dear son in the better land where parting is no more.

1845- d. 1905
McKinney - Three deaths in seven weeks is
the distressing record in the family of Mr. James B. McKinney, of McKinney.
First a daughter and sister was called hence, the wife and mother
and Saturday morning the husband and father answered to the final summons. Mr. McKinney's condition had been critical for months and the shock he received when Miss Lucy McKinney
died and again when his helpmeet of many years was taken from him, but shortened his earthly existence. Deceased was 59 years old, a consistent member of the Presbyterian church and a kind,
indulgent husband and father. He was a good neighbor and citizen and his death is a blow not only to his kin but to the people of his community, who lose in him an upright, just man and friend.
The loss, however, falls on the daughter, who is now the surviving member of a family which only a few months ago knew little or nothing of trouble. May a just God help her to bear the burden
of the calamities that now fall so rapidly and heavily upon her. In the presence of a large crowd of friends all that was mortal of Mr. McKinney was taken to the Hustonville cemetery Sunday
afternoon and there laid to rest by the side of the wife and daughter so recently buried. Dr. E. M. Green, a close friend of the deceased, made an appropriate talk at the grave. The burial was
an exceedingly sad one and there was scarcely a dry eye at its conclusion. In his remarks, Dr. Green mentioned the fact that flowers on one grave had barely withered and on the other were not dead,
while yet a third grave was hidden from view by beautiful flowers just gathered. His reference to Mr. McKinney, who was a great friend and admirer of Dr. Green, was exceedingly kind and pathetic,
while that to the surviving member of the family upon which death's hand has fallen so heavily was touching and beautiful.

afternoon. She was one of the oldest women in the county and had she lived until the 10 of next month, she would have celebrated her 81st birthday. Mrs. Menefee was a Miss Lynn and the
relict of Mr. Winfrey Menefee, who died in 1870. She was a most estimable woman and the many kind deeds done during her long sojourn on earth endeared her to all who knew her. Truly can
it be said of her that those who knew her best loved her most. For years Mrs. Menefee was a consistent member of the Baptist church and was a regular attendant at the services of the church as
long as her health would permit. Besides her son and daughter mentioned above she is survived by Mr. M. F. Herring, of the West End, Mrs. C. B. Sampson, of Mercer, and Mr. J. L. Menefee of
Kansas. In the absence of Rev. O. M. Huey, Rev. L. M Omer conducted funeral services at the home Wednesday afternoon and the burial followed in Buffalo cemetery. Rev. R. R. Noel
assisted in the services. Thus another of Stanford's oldest citizens passeth from life unto death, leaving many relatives and friends to mourn the loss of her.
