Mount Ayr Record-News, 1927

OBITUARY - MARY JANE (NEWTON) McKAHAN IRELAND.

Mary Jane NEWTON, daughter of Charles and Mary NEWTON, was born in Holmes county, Ohio, September 7, 1839, and died December 7, 1927, being 88 year and three months old.

She was married November 30th, 1865, to James McKAHAN in Ohio. Five children were born to this union, namely: Mrs. Nettie WARMON, of Huntsville, Mo.; Daniel McKAHAN, of Des Moines, Iowa; Mrs. J. C. JOHNSTON, of Valley Junction, Iowa; James I. McKAHAN, of Coeur d' Alene, Idaho, and Mary Esther, who died in infancy.

Her husband died March 13, 1889. She was married later to Thomas J. IRELAND, of Mount Ayr, Iowa, who passed on a few years later, May 16, 1898.

She leaves an aged invalid sister, 93 years old, Mrs. Elizabeth BEVINGTON, of Keosauqua, Iowa, and another sister, Mrs. Marjory GRAY, of McFall, Mo. One sister, Sarah CRAMBLETT, four brothers, Robert, James, Samuel and Joseph NEWTON, have preceded her in death. She also leaves six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

She united with the Christian church in early girlhood, her father being a minister of the gospel.

For a number of years she has made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Nettie WARMON, of Huntsville, Mo., and for the past seven years has been an invalid. Three weeks ago she was stricken with paralysis and at the last passed away peacefully. During her long illness she was patient and cheerful. She was a good wife and mother, always considerate of her children; a good neighbor, beloved by all.

Short funeral services were held at the home of her daughter at Huntsville, Mo., conducted by Rev. C. B. DABNEY, and the body was brought to her old home at Mount Ayr, Iowa, for burial in the family lot in Rose Hill cemetery.

Funeral services were held at the Rhoades Funeral Home in Mount Ayr at 2:30 Friday afternoon, being conducted by Rev. W. Harold SMITH, pastor of the Church of Christ. Her favorite songs, "Beautiful Isle of Somewhere", "Rock of Ages" and "It is Well With My Soul", were sung at the funeral service.

The pall bearers were nephews of Mrs. Ireland.

Card of Thanks.

We, the children, express our thanks for the many deeds of kindness shown during the years of invalidism and on the occasion of death and burial of our mother and the tribute of floral offerings.
Mrs. O. H. WARMAN, D. N. McKAHAN,
Mrs. J. C. JOHNSTON, and J. I. McKAHAN
