Wife of Frank L. Small.


Anna Malvina, third daughter of Henry and Mary Barker Hootman, was born near Mt. Zion, Iowa, Feb. 2, 1856, and died at her home in Birmingham, Iowa, Oct. 13, 1947, aged 91 years, 7 months, 16 days.

She was married to Frank Small Nov. 11, 1880, and to them were born three children, the oldest, Evert, dying in childhood and Drew in young manhood in 1925 and her husband in 1941, which leaves the Loy, the younger son, the sole survivor of the family. She is also survived by two brothers, Hovey Hootman of Douds, and E. J. Hootman of Cantril, and two sisters, Mrs. Orpha Ogden of Birmingham and Mrs. Ada Powelson of Santa Ana, Calif., and many nieces and nephews.

Mrs. Small was a member of the Presbyterian church in Mt. Zion since young womanhood and following their removal to Birmingham from the farm, was a regular attendant at the Birmingham Presbyterian church and Sunday school until failing health deemed otherwise.

Funeral services were held in the Birmingham Presbyterian church Thursday afternoon, Oct. 16, at 2 p.m. conducted by Rev. W. M. Doughty, Agency, Iowa, and she was laid to rest in Maple Hill cemetery beside her husband and son Drew.

A large concourse of relatives and friends attended the last rites.
