Wedding Anniversary: On Monday, [Feb] 22d, the home of Mr. and Mrs. Lee Cox was the scene of one of the most enjoyable occasions of the season. A large number of relatives and friends assembled there to celebrate the ninth anniversary of the wedded bliss of this worthy couple. In the midst of their social enjoyments, dinner was announced. The repast was most sumptuous indeed and bore ample testimony to the skill and good judgment of the ladies who had charge of that department. After dinner the time was spent in social chats and exhilarating sport. By comparing the photos of Mr. and Mrs. Cox with some taken nine years ago, it is very evident that Father Time has dealt leniently indeed with those persons and that their wedded life has been as placid as a summer dream. The happy couple were the recipients of some handsome tokens of esteem from their guests. When the time for departure came all expressed a wish that there might be many returns of the happy day.

The funeral took place from the M. E. church at 2 p.m. Thursday Rev. E. W. Beeson officiating, and the interment was made at Evergreen cemetery. [Correction: Blanche Osborn is buried in Fairview Cemetery, along with her parents and other family members.] Blanche was a bright little girl of handsome features and sunny disposition, the idol of the family and loved by all who knew her. Her death was unusually sad because of its suddenness. Her father was absent from home at the time. Only yesterday, as it were, she was with us, and today the cold and silent clod presses upon the tender little form of one whose brief existence here on earth was free from corroding cares and sorrows and who lived only to diffuse rays of sunshine in the home of her parents. She is gone, and although the tender bud was of this earth the bloom and garnered fruit must be sought in the Elysian fields of a vast eternity. We unite with the entire community in tendering words of sympathy to the bereaved parents in this dark hour of sorrow.

Died: At 8 o’clock last Monday morning, [Sep] 19th, at the residence of his aunt in Milwaukee, Wis., of consumption, James Dalrymple, son of A. F. Dalrymple of this city, aged about 20 years. Hiss illness was of short duration. Some three months ago he came here from Milwaukee, wither he had to go serve an apprenticeship as a practical machinist, and his health was very poor at that time. His decline was rapid, and on the 23rd of August he left for Milwaukee, hoping to be benefitted by the change of climate. His mother and sister also went along. About two weeks ago, as was announced in these columns at the time, his father received a telegram from the family to come at once, as James was failing fast. He left at once and remained with his stricken son until the spark of life was extinct. James was a most excellent young man, quiet, reserved and gentlemanly, and had a host of friends in this community, all of whom will be exceedingly pained to learn of his death. The Independent tenders its sincere sympathy to the bereaved parents and family in their hour of sorrow.

Died: "A Fatal Fall" - Chas. Jones, a young bridge carpenter in the employ of the Gulf road, and who was working on the new bridge at Boicourt, a small town 32 miles north of this city, fell from a scaffold on which he was working yesterday, and was fatally injured. The terrible accident was caused by the slipping of the timbers on which he was working and causing him to lose his balance and he fell a distance of sixty feet, striking on his head and shoulders, which were bruised and torn in a terrible manner. He was brought to this city on passenger train No. 1, which arrived at 1:30, and was met by Dr. Aikman, the company’s local surgeon, and placed in a wagon and conveyed to Mercy hospital, where everything possible was done for him, but it was of no avail. The poor fellow breathed his last a few minutes after he reached the hospital. Jones’ home was in Fulton, where he resided with his wife, who is blind and who is a daughter of Mrs. Dr. Mills of that place. She formerly lived in this city. (Sunday’s Ft. Scott Monitor) The remains arrived here Sunday afternoon in charge of several of his companions and fellow railroad employees. The funeral took place from the M. E. church at 2:30 o’clock, Rev. W. H. Howell officiating, and the interment was made at Evergreen cemetery. A very large audience assembled at the church and a large procession followed the body to its last resting place. Deceased was about 26 years of age and the son of Thomas Jones, one of our aged citizens.

Died: "Death from Heart Failure" - An old resident of this county, J. C. Hale, living several miles southwest of this city, died very suddenly last Monday night. He had been to Fort Scott during the day and occupied the evening in reading his newspapers, apparently in usual health. During the night he attracted his wife’s attention by making an unusual noise and by the time she had lighted a lamp, life had departed. He was an old man well known to many of our readers and had been honored by his neighbors with office on several occasions. Last fall he was elected Justice of the Peace, which office he held at the time of his decease.

Died: "Obituary" - Mary Eckles was born in Yorkshire, England, Nov. 6, 1837. In 1850, she came to America and to Illinois, where she was married to G. M. Waters March 15, 1865. Since that time she has lived in Illinois, Iowa and Kansas, the last ten years of her life being spent in Kansas. She came to Marshall county last June to visit her mother, brothers and sisters, and to try and regain her health, which had failed for several months. Her death occurred October 3. A husband, eight children, mostly grown up, an aged mother, three brothers and two sisters were left to mourn her departure. The funeral services yesterday afternoon at the Green Mountain church were very largely attended. A touching sermon was preached by Clint J. W. Treim. The Christian life of Mrs. Waters was a bright one. She was converted while at school at Mount Vernon, Iowa, and after that time she lived only to do good, always taking a great interest in the church and Sabbath school. In her home church in Kansas she was superintendent of the Sunday school and was much beloved by every one because of her bright and sunny temper. (Marshalltown Times-Republican (Iowa), Oct 6.)

Born: To Mr. and Mrs. C. R. Nuzum, on Monday, [Oct] 10th, a daughter. Mother and child are reported doing well and Charlie stands full two inches higher than usual.

Died: At about 9 o’clock on Sunday morning, [Oct] 16th, after an illness of only a few hours, at his residence near Prescott, Michael Dorsey, aged 51 years. The funeral occurred on Monday at 11 a.m., Father McGuire officiating, and the interment was made at Saint Patrick’s cemetery, west of this city. The deceased was a native of Ireland and came to America with his father’s family in 1851; came to Kansas in 1859; went to Louisville and married in 1860, and then returned with his bride to his home in Kansas, where we learn they have since resided. He leaves a widow and eight children - four daughters and four sons - ranging in age from 14 to 27 years. He was a brother of James J. Dorsey of this city, also of Patrick Dorsey, of Barnesville. Mr. Dorsey was, we are informed, a quiet industrious man, an excellent citizen and a kind husband and father. He leaves his family in good circumstances, we are told, having acquired a nice competency through his industry and good management.

Died: On Sunday, [Oct] 16th, after a brief illness, at his home southwest of this city, Thomas Flynn, aged about 82 years. The funeral took place from St. Patrick’s church, this city, on Monday at 3 p.m., Father McGuire officiating, and the remains were laid away in St. Patrick’s cemetery. Mr. Flynn was one of the old and well known settlers in his neighborhood, having been there since 1868, as we learn, and had the reputation of being an honorable, upright man and a good citizen. He was highly esteemed by all his neighbors and friends. He leaves a family of four children, we are informed - two sons and two daughters - all of whom are grown.
