Telitha Louellen Heaton

The following notice of death of Mrs. J. H. Heaton reached the Star office on last Friday forenoon, too late for publican last week:

Mrs. J. H. Heaton died at her home three miles west of Capron, Oklahoma, at about 2:30 a.m on June 3, 1907, aged 39 years and 11 months. Telitha Louellen Bachman was born at Napoleon, Ind., on July 7, 1867. At the age of 17 she moved with her parents to Comanche-co., Kans. On January 10, 1888, she was united in marriage to J. H. Heaton. To this union seven
children were born, all of whom are living-Pearl, Creight, Edith, Clarence, Joe, Nellie and baby, who was but 23 days old when his mother died. When the Strip opened Mrs. Heaton moved with her husband and
family to Oklahoma, where they continued to live. Besides the loving husband and children she is survived by an aged mother, now past 80, five brothers and three sisters and a host of friends who deeply mourn her death. Mrs. Heaton united with the Congregational church in 1897 and continued to be a consistent Christian. By her death the husband loses a faithful wife, the children a loving mother and the community a good
neighbor. Funeral services were conducted at the home by her old-time pastor, Rev. McWilliams. The remains were laid to rest in the Capron cemetery, followed by one of the largest funeral processions ever witnessed there. Relatives from a distance who attended the funeral were Abe Bachman and Miss Clara Bachman of Protection, Kans., brother and niece of the deceased, and Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Oller and family and Mr. and
Mrs. Geo. Overocker and family from near Coldwater, Kans., Mrs. Oller and Mrs. Overocker being sisters of J. H. Heaton. This is the first death in T. C. Heaton's family.
