COUNCIL GROVE REPUBLICAN, 10 October 1902
Obituary of ELIZA A. STRUBLE HUTCHISON
Died
---------------------------

Mrs. E. A. Hutchison, Saturday evening, after an illness of some two weeks at the home of her son, Perry Hutchinson, in east Council Grove.

She was eighty-two years of age and had lived to see her boys and girls grow to manhood and womanhood, five of the six living and being enabled to attend her funeral and three of which were with her at the time of her death.

She was a most lovable and kind hearted soul and all who knew her loved her. Her death while not unexpected at one so far in years, was indeed a sad blow and the family have the sincere sympathy of their many acquaintances and friends.

Her children living are Messrs. Life, Cash and Perry Hutchinson, Mrs. Fletcher Collins, Mrs. Jennie Fleming and Mrs. C. W. Williard, of Kentucky, all but the last named were in attendance at her death and funeral, which later was held Monday morning at the Methodist church Rev. Foresman preaching the sermon, after which she was buried at Greenwood cemetery.

On other pages of the same nespaper:

Purely Personal, People Coming and Going
L. E. and C. M. Hutchinson of Coalton, Ohio, attended the funeral of their mother this week.

Railroad Rumblings
Perry Hutchison was off this week on account of the death of his mother.

NOTE: The above transcription was made from a photocopy of the original newspaper article. Errors were not corrected. The family spelled their last name Hutchison, without an "n" in the middle. "Life" was a nickname for Eliphaz Hutchison; "Cash" was the nickname of his brother Cassius M. Hutchison. There was no Mrs. C. W. Williard, but Mrs. Jennie (Sarah Jane) Fleming lived in Kentucky, possibly in the town called Willard. The obituary fails to give the name of the other daughter, Mrs. Amanda Woodford who also lived in Council Grove.
