Adams, Margaret Elizabeth Hayes

Obituary - Brief mention was made last week of the death of Mrs I.W. Abbott, which occurred on the 22d. She had been an invalid for many years and had suffered much, but throughout it all she was sustained by her great faith in the Lord. She was one of the early settlers of this community and was known and loved by all for her womanly character and untiring efforts in behalf of the community and church. She will long be remember for the good she accomplished.

Funeral services were held Thursday afternoon at her late home, conducted by Rev Goodwin of Red Oak. Interment was in Memory cemtery.

Margaret Elizabeth Hayes, daughter of John W. and Priscilla Epps Hayes, was born at Hudsonville, Mississippi, July 27, 1846, and died at New Market, Iowa, March 22, 1921, aged seventy four years, seven months and twenty-five days.

At the age of 6 months she came with her parents to Salem, Henry county, Iowa, where her early life was spent.

August 30, 1863, she was married to Isaac Warren Abbott. They made their home in Lee county until the year 1868 when they moved to Taylor county. Into their home came 14 children, four of whom preceded their mother in death. The ten surviving children are Frank W. Abbot, of Coal Creek, Colo., Edward F. Abbott of Kansas City, Mo., Mrs Mary Gardner of Boulder, Colo; John I. Abbott, Bowling Green, Ky; Chas F. Abbott of Kansas City, Mo., Mrs Daisy Pinkerton of Shambaugh, Ia; Waldo L. Abbott, Loveland, Colo.; Mrs Clarice I. McPherrin, Loveland, Colo.; Geo A. Abbott, Santa Barbara, Calif.; and Arthur G. Abbott, Des Moines, Ia. She is also survived by one sister, Mrs W.H. Rose of Oskaloosa, Ia., and by two brothers, P.E. Hayes of North Platte, Nebr and W.F. Hayes, of Salem, Ia. These with the bereaved husband, fifteen grandchildren and one great grandchild unite with a wide circle of friends and neighbors to mourn her passing.

She united with the Cumberland Presbyterian church at Dunn school house in this county in 1868 and when they came to New Market she and her husband entered the fellowship of the Methodist Episcopal church here of which she has remained a faithful, consistent and earnest member. Together with her husband, she helped to bear the work of the Kingdom in the community. She loved the church and the pastor always found in Brother and Sister Abbott confiding friends, whose home was always open, and whose hearts were always warm.

Sister Abbott was a devoted wife and mother. The home was the center of her interest and there her unselfish heart poured itself out in ministering care. Her mother love overflowed even the bounds of the home circle and she mothered every little child which came around her. The very atmosphere of her household was fragrant with the home spirit and no one ever came within the home without being conscious of the rare spirit which presides over the home. She leaves to her family the precious heritage of a life rich in character and rare in the beauty of its personal Christian quality.

Calm and unafraid, her heart stayed on him to whom she had committed her trust, she slipped away into that rest which awaits the Masters own. She has gone where are the fountains of Eternal youth.

The following out of town relatives attended the funeral: F.W. Abbott, Coal Creek, Colo., C.F. Abbott and wife of Kansas City, Mo., E.F. Abbott, Kansas City, Mrs Mary P. Gardner and daughter Ruth, Boulder, Colo., Mrs Clarice McPherren, Loveland, Colo., Mrs Daisy Pinkerton, Shambaugh, Iowa, A.G. Abbott, Des Moines, Iowa, Mrs Lydia Brown of Hamburg, Iowa, Dan Hayes and daughter Doris, of Lincoln, Nebr., Mike Brown, of Farragut, Ia., P.E. Hayes, North Platte, Nebr., Mrs W.H.

Bundy, Lauretta H.aged 3 d, 1922

Obituary - Saturday morning, Oct 21st, a little daughter was born to Mr and Mrs LeRoy Bundy. The little one was christened Lauretta Helen and the world seemed bright for her and the adoring parents. But on Sunday the little one was taken sick and despite all that mortal hands could do the grim destroyer placed its stamp upon her, and on Monday at about eleven o'clock, the little life which had flutttered for so brief a time about the hearth of the doting parents, took its flight to Him who gave it. And now the home into which the coming of the little stranger had promised so much joy, is overcast with darkness and sorrow. Mere words at a time like this mean but little, but in their hour of sadness the sincere sympathy of all go out to the bereaved parents.
