The body was brought to the Fraze funeral home where it was prepared for burial, and returned to the home Tuesday morning. Surviving are the widow, Elmira Summers, one son, Walter, at home, and two daughters, Mrs. A. J Kabel and Mrs. A. H. Burke, both of Winchester. Funeral services were held at the home Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Burial was made in Fountain Park cemetery. David Summers, the son of Charles and Susan Summers, was born on September 6, 1847, on the farm adjoining Winchester, Indiana, died July 14, 1930, having lived here 82 years, 10 months and 8 days. When but fourteen days old his mother was taken away by death and the child was cared for by the kind hands of Polly Ludy, of Winchester, Indiana, until he was about one year old when his father was married again to his mother's sister, Rebecca Ludy whose motherly care and interest could only have been surpassed by his own mother. Today, of the 8 children of his father's family, only one, Mrs. Elzena Troxell, survive. Two brothers and four sisters having preceded him in death. October 15, 1872, he was united in marriage to Elmira Rowe, and to this union was born four children, one of which, Charles, died in infancy. Two daughters and one son are left to comfort the lonely heart of the mother. For nearly 58 years Mr. and Mrs. Summers live in this community, 15 of which they lived on the home place with his father, then building on the present site where the remaining 43 years were spent until separated by the death of the husband. "Here in this community they lived together, sharing the pleasures and hardships and trials of pioneer life: here they reared their children and have seen all the great improvements of 58 years. When but a youth he was converted to Christ, a very vivid experience and a deep, ever abiding faith established. In the early history of the Christian church here, he became a member of it. The weakness of the human flesh is considered, but even in his declining days, when he realized he was nearing the crossing over, he leaves with his beloved wife and children the comforting thought that he was "prepared to go. In passing of David Summers another of Randolph County's pioneer men has gone. He was a kind-hearted neighbor, a devoted husband and father. Among those of his nearest kindred who are left here for a while is the faithful wife, one son, Walter Summers, two daughters, Mrs. Celia Kabel and Mrs. Ella Burke, one sister, Mrs. Elzena Troxell, four grandchildren, all of Winchester, Indiana, with there are other relatives and friends whose sympathizing hearts share with the family their loss.
