IN MEMORY

Of Mrs. Frank Murphy, who passed away Feb. 13, 1931.

On the morning of Feb. 13 at 6:30 o’clock God came and called her home to rest. We cannot understand why we had to give her up, but God knows best. But, oh, how sad it was to look at her sweet face so cold and white, and to know that we could never see her again in this world.

She had been in ill health about two years, but was only confined to her bed a short while. Until God came and called her home where there would be no more suffering and pain. She suffered so much. She knew the end was not far, but she had nothing to fear. She was forty-one years of age and was a member of the Baptist church. This dear friend lived a true Christian life.

She leaves to mourn her death a broken-hearted husband and eight dear children, Curtis, Troy, Evelyn, Eldon, Durwood, Nathan, Finis and the darling little baby, Herbert Hoover, and so, so many broken hearted friends. It is so sad to think of this dear family left without a wife and mother. But dear family God knew best, now we must prepare to meet her on the resurrection morn.

Weep no more dear ones. She is not dead, but has only gone to rest until the resurrection morn. Where God shall call us to meet, where there will be no more heartaches, no tears, no sorrow.

She has gone, our loved one to rest,
To that blissful spirit land.
Gone to dwell with Christ forever,
And his holy angel band.

Jesus claimed as his jewel,
Now we will hear her kind words no more.
“Till we meet to sing with Jesus
On the fair celestial shore.

How we miss her since her spirit soared away,
But this thought: Our hearts will gladden.
We shall meet again some day.

MRS. FLOYD WILLIAMS.

Muggins Ingram
Died Jan 1899

January 19, 1899
Crushed to Death
Corsicana, Tex., Jan. 19. - "Muggins" Ingram, a negro man aged about 30 years and married, met with a horrible death in Rock creek bottom, two and a half miles north of the city, while chopping wood, a three-ton long rolling on him and crushing his life out. He had felled a large pin oak that was two and a half feet through at the butt and was standing on the trunk cutting off the "butt cutt." When the ax went through the log the butt end dropped, causing Ingram to fall backwards to the ground and before he could recover himself the severed part of the trunk of the tree rolled down an incline square onto his breast, killing him before any one learned of the accident. A negro boy passing by shortly afterward discovered the body with the immense log across the breast and gave the alarm. An inquest was held by Justice Walton and a verdict rendered in accordance with the above statement.

BODY OF POPULAR CORSICANA WOMAN IS BURIED SUNDAY

FUNERAL SERVICES FOR MRS. STELLA LUMSDEN HELD AT FAMILY HOME

Funeral services for Mrs. Stella Lumsden, aged 46 years, who died at an early hour Saturday morning in the Corsicana Hospital and Clinic were conducted from the home at the corner of Eighteenth street and Sixth avenue Sunday afternoon at 3 o’clock, with interment following in Oakwood cemetery, the body being laid to rest under a canopy of beautiful flowers beside that of her late husband, J. E. Lumsden, who preceded her in death several years ago.

Services were conducted at the home, by Dr. E. P. Culver, pastor of the First Methodist church, assisted by Rev. J. Howrd Williams, pastor of the First Baptist church. A quartette composed of Mesdames Henry Robbins and Harry Williams and Edgar Metcalf and Loyd G. Kerr sang favorite hymns of the deceased and a great concourse of friends filled the house and the yard and after the services followed the remains of their much loved friend to Oakwood cemetery where it was consigned to its last resting place to await the Resurrection morn.

Many have been the expressions of deep regret and sorrow at the passing of this bright and happy woman. It was truly a ray of sunshine that she carried with her everywhere she went, and many are the lives she has touched with her sunny nature and brought a sense of happiness where only sorrow and gloom had abided.

A profusion of beautiful flowers were sent by friends and they completely hid the mound from view and they reflected in a marked degree the beauty and happiness of the life of the woman who had strewn flowers and sunshine along life’s pathway.

Out of town friends and relatives present at the funeral services were Mrs. Denion W. Cooley and Mrs. Myrtle Lock of Houston, Mr. and Mrs. Roscoe Cook of Mexia, J. C. Fields and Grover Jennings of Dallas, Miss Lizzie Martin of Fort Worth, Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Anderson, Maxwell Anderson, Roland Martin, Dallas; Ruth Alice Leonard, C. I. A; Henry Gelseke, Minden, La.

Deceased is survived by one son, J. F. Lumsden; her mother, Mrs. J. H. Martin; two sisters, Mrs. W. M. Anderson of Dallas, and Mrs. Roscoe Cook of Mexia; three brothers, Lowry Martin and Boyce Martin of Corsicana, and Roland Martin of Dallas, as well as many other relatives over the State.
