Birth: Dec. 13, 1907
Death: Aug. 18, 1923

From the August 23, 1923 Skidmore News, page 1:
"Elvira Hortense Argo, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Argo, was born December 13, 1907 and passed away at the family home August 18, 1923, at the age 15 years, 8 months and 5 days.

She was converted and became a member of the M. E. Church at Burr Oak about four years ago. Since that time she has been an active member taking part in all church activities.

She had a very loving and affectionate disposition. All things she considered worth doing, she did well.

She leaves to mourn her loss, her mother and father, three sisters, Alta, Della and Myrtle; four brothers, Virgil, Ivan, Merlin and James, all of whom are at home.

Also grandparents, J. T. Hays, of Maryville, and Mr. and Mrs. T. B. Argo of Skidmore; her uncles, Milton R. and Pearl C. Hays, and Clarence Argo of Skidmore, Ed C. Hays of Mullen, Nebr., and James Argo of Quitman; her aunts, Mrs. M. R. and Mrs. Pearl C. Hays of Skidmore, Mrs. Z. R. Alexander of Elmo, Mo., Mrs. Elvira Dawson and Mrs. B. F. Jones of Maryville, Mrs. Lucy Wright of Shenandoah, Iowa, Mrs. Anna Willets of Mound City, Kans., and Mrs. Goodlow Carter of Horace, Kans., and many cousins and friends.

Funeral services were held at the Burr Oak church Monday morning with the pastor Rev. D. G. MacDougal in charge. Interment was in the Burr Oak cemetery."
