DEATH RECORD

List of Deaths not Mentioned by Correspondents

KEACH - Mrs. Susan Keach, formerly of this county, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. America Tuell, in Wichita, KS, Wednesday, January 14, 1914, aged 89 years, 3 months and 12 days.

She was the mother of the late Jas. F. Keach, deceased, and was well known over the county. By her death is broken a chain of living representatives of five generations of which Mrs. Keach was the oldest and little Nora Margaret Robbins, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Willis Robbins, of this place, is the youngest.

Susan Hall Fislar was born in Jeffersonville, Indiana, October 2, 1824. Her father, James B. Fislar, was one of the pioneer settlers of Jackson County, and at the time of her death, Mrs. Keach had in her possession the original papers signed by the government land officers. Her mother, Grace Hall Fislar, came to America from Scotland about 1820.

Deceased was married to Alexander C. Keach about 1842. To their union were born eight children, two dying quite young. Her husband was a soldier in the Civil War, and was among those who were confined in Libby Prison. He was paroled, but on account of the cruel treatment and starvation while there, died on his way hoe and was buried at Maysville, GA. His sad death left Mrs. Keach heartbroken and for several years afterwards she was an invalid, but for many years prior to her death was remarkably strong for a woman of her advanced years.

"Aunt Susan," as she was familiarly known by her friends, possessed a remarkable memory and delighted in relating to her family many reminisces of the war and early pioneer hardships, and especially of the "Pigeon Roost Massacre." She went with her father on horseback to see the first an ever hung by a Jackson County court. He had murdered his wife and threw her body into a well near Russell Chapel in Grassy Fork township.

Deceased is survived by three daughters, viz: Mrs. Martha Jane Young, of Manchester, OK; Mrs. Hettie Wayman, of Florence, Oregon, and Mrs. America Tuell, of Wichita, KS. Besides the two children who died in infancy, John R. Keach and Lucy E. Barr, died in 1884, and Jas. F. Keach, died July 14, 1913. Her only surviving brother is Napoleon B. Fislar, of Indianapolis. She also leaves a number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

The funeral services were held at Wichita Friday, January 16th.

She was a member of the Ladies' Relief Corps of Brownstown, also a member of the M.E. church, and one of the delights of her life was to see that the minister was paid his dues. She was a good Christian at heart, visiting the poor and needy and caring for the sick when her health would permit.

RE: Transfer
Please do not use this Public Message board when requesting transfers or additions to memorials. Instead, use the "Edit" button at the top of the memorial page. That sends an email with the links & #'s necessary, all on that message page. Makes it much quicker from my end & I don't have to search & go back & forth looking for your membership #, which you didn't provide in your message.

When you use the "Edit" button for the Foley's, I will be glad to make the transfers.

RE: Rucker's
LOL Now I want to know who the GG Grandfather is. I'll try next week and get the Rucker info. Your welcome for the transfers, I really enjoy helping people. I also talk to the people whose makers I'm taking pictures of so they know there are still loved ones thinking of them. Even in California.

RE: Rucker's
I documented all Ruckers in Riverview. I do believe there are a few at Waskom. In the spring I will be refurbushing Pioneer with a group of people and documenting all headstones we find. There is a book at our library that has the full family tree of Nathan and Patsy Rucker. I can copy those and email them to you if you like. It's a little difficult to read though. It's only about 10 pages.
I'm more than happy to find more of them if you need me to.

RE: James F Rucker
I found his obituary and posted it. It says (and so does the funeral home records) that he is buried at Riverview. His Brother Nathan is in Sec. D and there are several unmarked areas beside Nathan and his wife. The Riverview book does not list James F. Rucker so I believe him to be unmarked.
