Carrie was my great grandmother and the second wife of Frank Soule.
The Holden Progress-Jan 27, 1921-In the death of Mrs. Carrie Soule there passed away a member of a family that has been identified with the life of this community for over 50 years. Almost all of her life was spent at the home about two miles northwest of Kingsville where her parents, Mr. & Mrs. Hugh Bay settled when they came to this county. In her young womanhood she was an efficient and successful school teacher. She was a champion speller and at all of the old time spelling matches in the community, she was the first to be chosen and she seldom if ever failed to win the victory for her side. She was quiet and reserved but positive in her convictions and persevering in any task to which she committed herself. She had carried her share of earth's burden of sorrow. She tenderly nursed her husband in a long and losing battle with the dread disease, cancer. She cared for her mother during her declining years and last illness and during these times had the care of her home and her children. She was sustained through these trials by an abiding faith and confidence in God. She faced death bravely and without a fear and calmly gave her friends instructions regarding her funeral and requested that one of the songs should be "It is well with my soul." The sympathy of a host of friends is extended to the bereaved relatives. Carrie Bay was born February 28, 1861 and died January 21, 1921; she was 59 years, 10 months and 21 days of age. She was born at Jefferson City and died at St. Joseph's hospital Friday night after an illness of two weeks. She was married to Frank Soule in September, 1892 and to this union four children were born, all of whom survive her: Hugh Samuel and Frank Richard of Kingsville; two daughters, Mary and Bessie of Kansas City; and one brother S.S. Bay of Kingsville. She united with the Baptist Church at an early age and lived true to the faith until death claimed her. The funeral ___day morning was attended by a large number of friends. The service was conducted by Rev. C.W. Smith and the body laid to rest in Bluff Springs cemetery.
