The Western Spirit, Paola, Miami Co., Kansas, Friday, July 3, 1925:

"Mrs. Martha Cameron Binkley died at her home in Louisburg, Kansas, on Tuesday, June 30, 1925, in her 82nd year.

Born in Illinois, March 24th, 1844, she was married to Andrew J Binkley, at Lancaster, Kansas, on October 23, 1862.

To this union three children were born, Mrs. Eva Cooper died in 1884 and a son died in infancy. Mr. and Mrs. Binkley lived on their farm near Rockville in Sugar Creek township until about the year 1880, when they left the farm and built them a new home in South Louisburg. Mr. Binkley died in 1893.

About twenty-five years ago she fell and injured her knee, which caused her to be a cripple since then. Five years ago she purchased a little cottage near her church so that she might attend services more regularly. Two years ago she suffered a stroke of paralysis and the November following she had another stroke and had been practically an invalid since.

Although she suffered greatly, she bore her burden cheerfully and looked on the bright side of life. Mrs. Charles G. Weaver, an adopted granddaughter, did everything that loving hands could do. Mrs. Binkley is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Henrietta Reed, of Palm Springs, California, a grandson, Harry Reed and two great grandchildren, Rowland Binkley Reed and Helen Lee Reed, of Compton, California; an adopted granddaughter, Mrs. Charles G. Weaver and great granddaughter, Betty Louise Weaver, of Louisburg. Also, one niece, Mrs. Lillie Cameron Riggs, of Altamont, Kansas.

Funeral services were held Thursday afternoon at 2:00 P.M. from the M. E. church conducted by Rev A. J. Cutrell and burial was in the Rockville cemetery beside her husband."
