The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1923

OBITUARY - MRS. MARY PATRICK.

Mary BONNER, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James BONNER, was born August 13, 1841, in Marion county, Ohio. She was one of a family of seven children and one of the pioneer settlers of Ringgold county. She was a small girl when her parents came west and first settled near Bethany, Mo., in 1851, later coming to Ringgold county in 1854, where her home has since been. Only one sister, Mrs. Patience DAILY, of Bethany, Mo., and three brothers William, of Wamego, Kan.; James, of Britton, Okla., and John, of Kellerton, Iowa, are still living.

Mary BONNER and Harmon PATRICK another of the stauch (sic) pioneers of this county were united in marriage November 17, 1860. To this union were born nine children - six sons and three daughters. Three of the sons and the youngest daughter died in infancy and the eldest son, John L., April 28, 1903, soon after the death of the husband and father which occurred February 22, 1903.

The four surviving children are Mrs. A. J. STRICKLAND, of Carnegie, Okla.; Mrs. S. E. HOLLEN, of Mount Ayr; William H. PATRICK, of Blockton, and J. Edward, of Omaha, Neb.. Mrs. STRICKLAND, the two daughters-in-law and two of Mr. PATRICK's children by a former marriage, H. B. PATRICK, of Lamoni, and Mrs. Ellen GLAZEBROOK, of Murray, were unable to be here because of illness. There are also seventeen living grandchildren and twenty-seven great grandchildren.

Mrs. PATRICK was called to rest at 4:15 a.m. March 22, 1923, aged eighty-one years, seven months and nine days. She had not been in good health for some time, but her last illness was caused by pneumonia.

Funeral services were held from the Methodist church Saturday morning at eleven o'clock and the body was laid to rest in Rose Hill cemetery [Mount Ayr].
