Walnut Leader, Friday, August 16, 1912, page 1, column 2&3
Miss Mary Black, an esteemed resident of this place, passed away at the residence of her niece Mrs. D.L. Conklin Tuesday, August 6, 1912, after being in poor health for several weeks.
Miss Black was born in Sandusky county, Ohio, Jan. 29, 1832. Of a family of nine children she was the eldest. She is survived by one sister who resides at Linden, Iowa.
With her parents she moved to Cass county, Michigan, in 1856. In the year of 1865 she came to Bureau Co. with her brother G.W. Black and had lived in and around this vicinity ever since. The last five years she had made her home with Mr. and Mrs. D.L. Conklin of Walnut.
In her early girlhood days she became a member of the M.P. church and had lived a consistent Christian life. She was ever quiet and reserved and always considerate of others, willingly serving as her Master did, striving always to follow His example. Honest in her dealings with those around her, during her many years of life, she has been a living example of faith in an all-wise God who has sustained her all these years.
She leaves one sister, two brothers-in-law and a host of nieces and nephews and other relatives who will miss Aunt Mary from the family circle.
The funeral was held at her late home Thursday afternoon, Rev. Otis officiating and the remains were laid to rest in Walnut cemetery.
We wish to express our appreciation to the neighbors and friends who tendered assistance and consolation during the illness and after the death of our beloved aunt. Mr. and Mrs. D.L. Conklin.
