Audubon County Journal, May 23, 1901, pg. 3, col. 1:

Mrs. Hester M. McCord died, May 21, 1901, at the age of forty-five years, three months and four days, at the home of her father John F. Hill, living east of Exira. She had been suffering from the awful effects of a cancer for some time and nothing could give her relieft until death came, more as a welcome guest than an enemy, to relive her from her intense misery. The funeral services took place at the Christian church on Wednesday afternoon at three o'clock, conducted by Elder E. C. Whitaker, the pastor, where a large number of friends and relatives had gathered to pay their last regards to the departed one, after which the remains wer elaid to rest in a grave at the Exira Cemetery. She had been a faithful member of the Christian church for several years and died in the faith of Christ, which is the hope of the world.
