    Notes 
    • Mrs. A. Weaverling Died Monday Night, After Long Illness

      Mrs. Adam Weaverling, one of the best-known women of the town, passed away at the home of her son, Perry, Monday evening, after an illness of many months. It was about a year ago that Mrs. Weaverling fell on the icy walk and fractured three ribs. She never wholly recovered from that, and with a complication of other trouble; has suffered more or less severely since.

      However, she was up and about and only a few weeks ago was up town, collecting freight bills for her son, as she had done for many years whenever she was able.

      Susan Jane Oldham was born November 10, 1860, in Columbus county, Indiana. She was the daughter of Absalom and Margaret Oldham.

      The family moved to Andalusia, Illinois, when Susan was 7 years of age. Here she grew to womanhood.

      Five children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Weaverling: Richard R.,and Perry E.,of Osage; John B. H.,Atlanta, Ga.; Howard E., of Milwaukee, Wis.; and Ruth E., who passed away in 1920.

      Mrs. Weaverling was baptized at the age of 14 by immersion in the Mississippi river. She was a member of the Baptist church for about nine years; then when she came to Osage united with the Methodist church, of which she remained a faithful member for forty-three years, to the end of a useful life. She loved her church and its standards, and was devoted to her children and grandchildren.
