The remains of Miss Maria Crawford were buried in the Brown cemetery, three miles south of
Liberty, on Saturday morning last.
Died at her home in this county, on last Tuesday, Mrs. Mary Shaw, widow of the late Richard D. Shaw, in the 79th year of her age. This venerable Christian woman leaves a large family of children, among whom are two prominent Presbyterian ministers, and others are among our best citizens. She has ever been a well-known lady in her neighborhood, whose influence for good has been felt in every circle of society in which she has lived and moved. She has many relatives and friends who will cherish her memory as sacred.
At a meeting of the Board of Trustees of East Fork Institute the following preamble and resolution was adopted:
Whereas, It hath pleased Divine Providence to remove from our midst our Brother Charles H. Butler, who departed this life at his home in this county on May 14th, 1891; therefore be it
Resolved, That in the death of Bro. Butler the community has lost a good, kind and noble citizen, the church an earnest, zealous Christian, and the Board of Trustees of East Fork Institute a worthy and efficient member.
T. S. Cockerham, G. H. Sharp and W. M. Robinson, Committee.
