Mrs. Barbara Kosar, one of the pioneers of the Bohemian settlement at this place, died Wednesday evening at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Jacob Taha, near here. Funeral services were held at the Taha home at 11 o'cock a.m. Friday and burial was made in the Bohemian cemetery. The service was conducted by Joseph Duben, mostly in the Bohemian language and a selected quartet rendered hymns in both English and Bohemian languages. The offerings of flowers were abundant and beautiful. Six grandsons: Ed, John, Will, George, Frank and Joe Taha, served as pallbearers. Mrs. Kosar was about 75 years of age. She came to this country from her native land, Bohemia, while still a young woman, and has lived on a farm near here for about 40 years, until during her last illness of over a year's duration, when she was taken to the home of her daughter for better care. Her husband passed from this life several years ago. She leaves to mourn her loss one daughter, Mrs. Anna Taha, north of Prescott, and three sons, James, of the Nevinville bank force; Joseph, on the home farm, and John, living north of Williamson, also a number of grandchildren and other relatives. The sympathy of friends is freely extended to the relatives.
