OBITUARY ~ ELIZA (BURNS) CLAYTON

Eliza Burns, daughter of Jas. and Mary Delaney Burns was born in Warren county, Ill., near Monmouth, December 23, 1856, and departed this life October 5, 1931, at the age of 74 years, 9 months, and 12 days. Death occurred at her home in Clearfield. When a young girl she moved with her parents to Monmouth, where she grew to womanhood and received her education in the high school at that place. January 6, 1886, she was united in marriage to J. Wilburn Clayton. They resided on a farm 6 miles south of Monmouth for sixteen years, then moved to Iowa, locating on a farm two miles north of Clearfield. In 1912 they left the farm and moved to Clearfield where they have since lived. To this union were born five children—Katie, Marie Beggs of Clearfield; May, who died April 29, 1904; Frank Clayton of Creston; Earl Clayton and Anna Porter of Clearfield. On account of failing eyesight Mrs. Clayton had not been able in late years to leave her home very often; but her keen interest in the welfare of her loved ones never diminished. She is survived by her husband two daughters, five grandchildren, and one sister, Mrs. Anna Kane of Monmouth. Also a host of other relatives and friends. Funeral services were held on Wednesday afternoon, October 7 at the home, conducted by Rev. H. B. Hutchman, pastor of the U.P. church, assisted by Rev. John C. Turner, pastor of the Methodist church. Interment was in Clearfield cemetery.
