THE WESTERN STAR, 14 May 1892
Obituary of NITA TICHENOR
DEATH of MRS. O. L. TICHENOR.

Oscar L. Tichenor arrived here, last week, from Dayton, Tenn., on a visit to his father's family, and also brought home with him his eldest children, a boy and a girl, who will find a home with Mr. and Mrs. J. E.
Tichenor. He brought the news of the death of his wife, Mrs. Nita Tichenor, who breathed her last at Dayton, Tenn., April 30th, and from him we gleaned the following particulars; O. L. Tichenor is a traveling
agent for the Wrought Iron Range Co., of St. Louis, Mo., and travels over the eastern and southern states, and his family usually accompanied him. Two weeks prior to Mrs. Tichenor's death, they arrived at Dayton,
Tenn., and a few days afterwards, on the 18th of April, Mrs. Tichenor gave birth to a pair of twins, a boy and a girl. Twelve days later she died from what the doctors claimed to be malaria, contracted in traveling through Mississippi and Louisiana. Although among strangers,
the ladies of Dayton did all in their power to alleviate her suffering, and at her burial, May 1st, filled her grave with flowers. The twins survive her and were taken to Fort Scott by Mr. Tichenor and left in charge of Mrs. William Hall, sister of the deceased. The deceased was a daughter of Amassa Hathaway, now residing near Portland, Oregon. She was born in Wisconsin, Sept. 27th, 1867, and at the time of her death was aged 24 years and 4 months. She was a devoted member of the Christian church, having united with that denomination at Senatobia, Miss., about a year ago. The deceased came to this county in 1888, and was united in marriage to O. L. Tichenor in this county, April 3rd, 1887. She was an
ambitious woman, and up to the time of her death, occupied all her spare time in the pursuit of her studies, and she had taken up the branches of shorthand, music and painting. It is sad to chronicle the death of youth, or early manhood or womanhood. Like a plucked flower bud, life is ended ere its mission is fairly begun. Mrs. Tichenor leaves a fond husband to mourn her untimely death, and four young children, which, if they live, will never know from experience a mother's love.
