Obituary from the March 20, 1924 Skidmore News, page 1:

"Mrs. Elizabeth Cordell, a resident of this county for sixty-five years, died Wednesday morning of last week at 10:30 o'clock, following a few days illness of pneumonia, at her home one and a half miles southeast of Quitman where she had lived since first coming to the county.

Mrs. Cordell was eighty-nine years of age. She came to Nodaway County from Ohio sixty-five years ago with her brother, John Busby, who now lives in Maryville.

Surviving her are five children: Frank Cordell, White River, S. D.; Sherman Cordell, Quitman; Mrs. Ida Pubridy, Orleans, Neb.; Mrs. Emma Givens, Riverton, Wyo.; and Mrs. Ella Lawrence, Reubens, Idaho. A sister, Mrs. Mary Anderson, Spokane, Wash., also survives.

Funeral services were held at the Christian church in Quitman Saturday and burial was in the I. O. O. F. cemetery." Courtesy of findagrave member Robin Riat
