From the News Paper "The Soper Democrat" :
R.R. Dennis, Who returned from Markham's Mill today, reports that Geo. F. Markham died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Glady's Foster this morning at 5 O'clock. His death was sudden, and it is supposed that he had a heart attack, as he had been complaining lately of such attacks.
Funeral services and burial will be at the Soper Cemetery tomorrow (Friday) at 2 O'clock in the afternoon. His wife, Nina Evans Markham died about 3 years ago and is buried here. He is survived by three daughters, and two sisters.
Mr. Markham resided in Soper for many years, coming here in the early days of the town, and built many houses here. He was in the drug store business here until about 1920 when he sold out and returned to his Saw Mill about 30 miles north of Soper. Mr. Markham had a big part in the building of the town and was one of its staunchest supporters. His death is great shock to all.
His Daughters were: Sally Mae, Gladys Adeline, and Dorothy Louise.
