"Sarah Bookout dies suddenly--August 10"
Sarah Isabel Weatherman Bookout died unexpectedly at the old home place about eight o'clock on Tuesday morning, August 10, 1948. She was 90 years old her last birthday February 6, 1948. There was no warning of her sudden death. She was living with her son Clem and daughter, Ethel. She had gone to the kitchen for breakfast and fell and died almost at once.
Funeral services are planned for today (Thursday) at Walnut Shade school house or at the Whelchel Funeral home in Branson, as circumstances may permit. Burial is to be in the Walnut Shade cemetery beside her husband.
She is survived by three sons, Lonnie of Forsyth, Ed and Clem of the Branson community and a daughter, unmarried, Ethel, also of Branson community.
Also one brother, Link Weatherman of Rich Hill, Missouri.
She was married in youth to James Harvey Bookout who died in 1913.
All her life had been spent in the Walnut Shade community on the old family homestead which her husband and she had bought.
The death of Mrs. Bookout marks the passing of another of the old spiritual landmarks of Taney county. Her marriage marked the union of two of the oldest and most respected of pioneer families. The ancestry of the Bookouts and the Weathermans goes back long before Civil War days.
If ever emulation in worth and goodness were in helpful competition it was in these two families. In them the law discovered in the Jukes was in the opposite given confirming proof. To call the was assurance to speak of good citizenship. Such are the true wealth of a nation.
The student who with painstaking research found that a criminal Juke left generations of worthless or evil descendants turned to the study of the Cotton Mather family. In the long line of descendants the investigator found only one man of evil, Aaron Burr. So the Bookout and Weatherman families stand forth as examples of people who have no need of restraining law. Possibly a critic might find on blacksheep in the generations but if so like unto the Cotton Mather generation it would only be a noble proof of the firm goodness of the family strain.
It is the comfort of my life that such as these have been my comrades. These families are but the prototypes of so many of the hill people that in writing this tribute I am writing a tribute to all.
Especially does this refer to the Casey family also. Price Casey died the same day and under similar circumstances but up to the time this is being set we have not been able to get the details for an obituary. And if we do fall we expressly wish this to stand as tribute to the Casey family also.
