Mrs. L. M. McFarland Dead.

Last Friday, November 11th, 1921, at the home of her son, Ray, in Cleburne, Mrs. L. M. McFarland passed away. The body was brought to Burnet and interred Saturday afternoon in the Old Cemetery, Rev. Joe Eustis officiating.

Mrs. McFarland's maiden name was Rountree. She was born in Alabama on the 31st day of October, 1837, making her at the time of her death a little more than 84 years of age. When a small girl she moved with her father's family to Texas, and shortly thereafter came to Burnet County, where in 1854 she was united in marriage to S. K. McFarland. To this union eight children were born, four of whom are still living. They are S. L. McFarland of Marlin; R. J. McFarland of Burnet; W. A. and Ray McFarland of Cleburne. More than 50 years of her life was spent in Burnet County, placing her in the ranks of the old settlers of this section. At the age of fourteen years, Mrs. McFarland joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church and for 70 years she lived a consistent Christian life, loved and respected by a large number of relatives and friends.

Three sisters and six brothers also survive her, as follows: Mrs. Bob Lewis, Burnet County; Mrs. Frank Thomas of this section; Mrs. Sylvania Fitts of Seattle, Washington; John Rountree of the Bertram community; F. S. Rountree of Vigo Park, Texas; Jeff, Jim and Wilse Rountree of Nogales, Arizona, and Babe Rountree, who resides in the state of Washington.

The Bulletin joins in extending condolence to the bereaved relatives.
