Hattie Viola Ashbrook
Hattie Viola Kelly, daughter of E. D. and Amanda Kelly, was born near Quitman, Missouri, on the 4th day of April 1877. When she was two years old, the family moved to Kansas and remained there until 1880 when they returned to the Quitman vicinity where they lived until 1888, and then moved to Green county, Missouri. After five years spent in southern Missouri she again returned to Nodaway county and Miss Kelly spent several years in the homes of her grand parents, Mr. and Mrs. George W. Collins, Sr., and an uncle, Wesley Yetter.
On the 4th day of August, 1902, she was united in marriage of John M. Ashbrook, and Skidmore has since been their home. Four children were born to them: Georgia Mae, now Mrs. Ray Hardin; Dorothy, now Mrs. Richard Reaksecker; Dorris, who died in infancy, and John A.
Death claimed Mrs. Ashbrook Friday afternoon May 18, 1934, at the age of 57 yeas, 1 month and 14 days, after she had been spared to see her daughters graduated from high school and married and her son finish high school from which he was graduated the day before her passing.
In girlhood she became a member of the Christian church. Besides her husband and three children, she leaves three sisters, Mrs. Alice Wilson and Mrs. Maude Britton of Camas, Wash., and Mrs. Emma Black, of Coffeyville, Kansas, two brothers, Ben and Ray Kelly of Mound City, MO., and a half sister, Mrs. Uriah Hadely of Wann, Oklahoma, and a host of other relatives and friends who will remember her for her kind words and deeds.
