The following article was taken from "The Diaries of Alanson Wood Moore". June 25, 1905
"Mattie Ross Nugent died at her home in Boeuf Prairie Sunday, 25th, at 4 o'clock PM. Services at the church conducted by A. W. Moore in the presence of a large and sympathizing congregation. The funeral was announced to take place at 2:00 PM, but rain prevented it. She was a Christian woman, patient and resigned during her long illness of about eight weeks; and was a great sufferer. But at the close of her life she was conquerer over all. Like "John the beloved", she saw the heavens opened and angels waiting to receive her home. She leaves a husband, six children, father, four brothers and one sister."
