In Memoriam [sic]
Mrs. Dave JARRELL, formerly Miss Jane FITZPATRICK, was born June 20, 1853, in Floyd County, Kentucky. At the age of 18, she married D. C. JARRELL, near Fredonia, Kansas. To this union, six girls and four boys were born. About sixteen years ago she joined the Christian Church and was baptized. She lived a Christian life and was willing to aid her neighbors in any way she could.

OWENS, of Guthrie, preached the funeral at her home on Wednesday at 2 p.m., interment being made at the Cooper cemetery. A husband, two sons, three daughters and three sisters survive to mourn their loss. The entire community extends sympathy in this hour of bereavement. [Note: Buried at Cooper Cemetery.]
