Mrs. John Galer, of Mt. Ayr, while driving home from Alton fell from the vehicle and sustained injuries which resulted in her death shortly afterwards.

~Osbourne County Farmer, Osborn co., Kansas; December 22, 1898


-Despite the inclement weather on Monday a large concourse of friends attended Mrs. Galer's funeral. In her death we lose a noble woman and a good neighbor. We deeply sympathize with the family in their bereavement.

-Miss Olive Galer has given up her school since her mother's death.

-Two brothers of Mrs. John Galer, Horatio and Prentice Gifford, arrived here from Littleport, Iowa, last week. They thought to reach here in time to attend the funeral. After visiting here a few days they will return by way of Morrill, where they will spend a few days with Mr. Nate Lee.
