A PIONEER At REST taken from "The Trenton Register" newspaper Sep 20, 1907 p-1; col-3
Mrs. Martin Allison passed away at her home two and a half miles south of Palisade, Friday, September 6th, 1907, aged 63 years, 10 months and 5 dyas. She was born in Indiana November 11, 1843. In 1867 she was united in marriage with Martin Allison, who survives her. They came to Richardson county, this state, and from there to the old homestead in this county where she spent her last days, having lived here since 1887.
Besides her husband she leaves four children and six brothers.
The funeral was held Saturday afternoon, J. W. Murdock officiating, that being her request. Interment in the family lot on A. J. Sailors' place.
Thus ends the earthly career of one of our best and oldest citizens.
It makes a home sad and desolate to have a dear mother taken away when she is to greet the returning son and daughter no more. The home may be still lovely, the fields green, the flowers in bloom; perchance too, there is an aged father, with venerable locks, sitting in his lonliness, with everything to command respect and love, but she is not there, the place is not what it was and it will never be again. It is a loosening of one of the cords which bond you to earth designed to prepare you for your eternal flight from everything dear here below.
Weep not that her toils are over, weep not that her race is run; God grant that we may rest as calmly, when our work, like her's, is done. Till then we yield with gladness, Our moth is thine to keep; And rejoice in the sweet assurance, "He giveth His loved one sleep."
