The funeral services were held from the Free Methodist church at 2:00 o’clock Monday afternoon, conducted by the Rev. J.F. Mudd, burial in East Linwood cemetery. She was a native of Indiana and was in her seventy eighth year. In 1848 she was married to Samuel Blunk and they came to Boone county in 1855 and have resided here since.
