No stone found. Burial here from death certificate

Stokeley Towles, a young man well known and respected in this vicinity, died at the country home of his sister last Sunday night. Though in failing health for more than a year, he was only confined to his bed the last four or five days, having grown suddenly worse last Wednesday. Mr. Towles, who had many friends here and was liked by all, has for years been a subject of much sympathy from his every acquaintance. Twenty-seven years ago he suffered an attack of rheumatism which made him a permanent cripple. His back became bent and those long years he has never been able to raise himself to a standing posture. Those who knew him best praise his happy uncomplaining disposition. Through all his affliction no words of impatience ever passed his lips. He was brave and heroically bore the severe trial and ill health. He was born seven miles from Huntsville, Mo, September 15, 1870. His parents were Mr. and Mrs. Robert Towles. The mother survives him, also two brothers, Tom and Willard, and five sisters, Mesdames Ida Romans, Lucy Riley, Mollie Redding, Mrs. J. C. Thomas, and Fanny Towles. The funeral services were conducted Monday by the Rev. Mr. Lynn. The burial was made at the Lay Cemetery. Great sympathy is felt for those bereaved.
