Wife of Harvey Wallis Salmon (Missouri State Treasurer)

Burial plot: B310 L0184 G02 - daughter of John S. & Linna WEAR KIMBROUGH - married: Nov 16, 1871 to Harvey Wallis SALMON Sr. - children: Harvey Wallis Jr., Merritt K., Louise, Warren D.

Clinton MO, Sep 1 1894 - With widespread wings, the Death Angel alighted in our midst Monday night and claimed for its victim the wife of our estimable fellow citizen, Harvey W. Salmon. Mrs. Salmon had not been ill a great while. Hers was a complication of diseases but inflammation of the stomach and bowels seemed to be the most serious difficulty. Dr. Britts was the attending physician and faithfully performed his duties. Dr. John Kimbrough of St. Louis was in attendance at his sister's bedside during the last days of her illness. Mrs. Salmon was a daughter of Uncle Johnny Kimbrough and was born in Springfield, Mo. in 1850, making her 44 years of age. She came with her parents to Clinton in the fall of 1869 and was educated at Christian College in Columbia. She has been a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church for 25 years. In 1871, Uncle Johnny Kimbrough gave his daughter, Kate in marriage to Harvey W. Salmon and their married life has been spent in congenial happiness. Five children, four boys and one girl, made merry music in their home until death chilled the heart of one baby boy, a remarkably bright little fellow. At her death, Mrs. Salmon's oldest child, Harvey, Jr., was 21 and he will miss his gentle mother sadly. Merritt, Louise and Warren are too young to fully realize their loss but as they grow older they will know that the dearest, best thing in the world has been denied them - the tender love and watchful care of a Christian mother. To Mr. Salmon, her loss is irreparable. Also three sisters and four brothers are deeply grieved over the loss of what to them was a second mother. And, in tenderest pity, we speak of what her loss is to her aged father. Seventy-five years have come and gone since he entered this life and it seemed that, in his feeble old age, he would be the first to return to the life from whence he came. He had grown to depend on her for the brightness and sunshine of his old age. Funeral services were held at the elegant home of the deceased on East Green Street.
