MATILDA CANZANDA HUNT WALL
(Feb. 17, 1935)
MRS. ADRIAN M. WALL DEAD
The soul of "Aunt Can" Wall, Johnson County Pioneer whose home was north of Blairstown, entered eternity Sunday night after Mrs. Wall was ill for several weeks. February 8, Mrs. Wall passed her 89th milestone, but the celebration in honor of the event was quiet for she was ill and unable to participate in any merrymaking.
Matilda C. Hunt, daughter of John B. and Nancy L. Hunt, was born in Johnson Country, February 8, 1846. During the Civil War the family fled from their home in Cass County when everything was taken from them and Johnson County became their home.
She was married to Adrian M. Wall, December 20, 1864. Their married life was spent on the farm north of Blairstown. Mrs. Wall was a true pioneer, raising her family in the midst of privations and hardships common to pioneer life, but meeting each duty bravely and looking always to the future of her children. Her tales of pioneering were told to her children, then passed on to her grandchildren and other descendants, just as she gave them hardiness of body and moral stamina. She was fun-loving and happy, always ready to lend her assistance in any trouble and ever cheerful and contented. Until her last illness, she was active and busied her fingers with handiwork – sewing, crocheting, and knitting. She was a member of the Blairstown Presbyterian church and took an active part in the church work.
Her loved ones mourn her passing, but realize that in their loss she is now happy in her reunion with her loved ones and the meeting of her Savior. Her husband preceded her in death in 1902, and three children are also dead. The seven living ones are John R., Oliver W., Robert A. Wall and Mrs. Maude J. Atkins of Blairstown; Addison M. Wall, north of Blairstown, and Rufus and Ben Wall at home. There are also 13 grandchildren and a great-great-grandson.
Funeral services were held at the Presbyterian Church in Blairstown Tuesday afternoon. Rev. S. G. McCluney, former pastor of the church, but now of Knob Noster, conducted the service. Burial was in the Wall family cemetery north of Blairstown.
