DEATH OF MRS. CARRIE CARSON
Mother of Mrs. T. W. Kelly
Passes Away in St. Joseph.
Mr. and Mrs. T. W. Kelly, of Stillwater, received word last Friday that Mrs. Carrie Carson, Mrs. Kelly's mother, was dying in St. Joseph, Missouri.
They left on the first available train for her bedside, but she had passed away before their arrival.
Although stricken with paralysis, she had been conscious to the last, and at her own request she was laid beside her late husband in the cemetery at Gentryville, Missouri.
Mrs. Carson had for many years made her home with Mr. and Mrs. Kelly, and was well known and well loved in Stillwater.
Considerably against her will, but feeling it a duty, she went to Missouri in the late summer to visit other relatives, but was expecting to return.
She had been in failing health for some months, but there was no thought of an immediate fatal termination of her illness, until the evening of Wednesday, November 20, when she was stricken with paralysis of the left side, and died on Friday, November 22, 1907.
The decedent was born in Clinton County, Missouri in 1841, and was married to P. H. Carson in 1857.
She leaves four children: A. T. Carson of Bethany, Missouri, J. W. Carson of St. Louis, Missouri, Mrs. I. N. Long of Stanberry, Missouri, and Mrs. T. W. Kelly of Stillwater, Oklahoma.
Mrs. Carson had lived a faithful Christian life and was prepared to enter the promised rest, praying that her loved ones might meet her there.
