Savilla Hildreth (50027966)

Suggested edit: Savilla Cunningham was born May 16, 1841, at Fairmont, W. Va., and departed this life Friday, April 6, 1917, at the age of 75 years, 10 months and 10 days. In 1858 she was united in marriage to Joseph Hildreth and to this union nine children were born, four of whom, with their father, preceded her in death. They were Lincoln, Manuel, Rance and Bruce. The remaining children are; Marion of Twin Bridges, Montana; William of Liberty, Canada; Mose and Mrs. Della Reese of Fairview and Mrs. Minnie Stonehocker of Taft, California.
At the age of 15 years she united with the M.E. Church at Fairmont, W.Va., and continued to live a good faithful christian life unto the time of her death.
Grandma Hildreth had lived in Major County since the opening of the Strip, and during that time suffered with the pioneers of this county the privations and hardships. She was always a good true neighbor and friend, doing all in her power to help and better mankind. She raised a family of children who are honored and respected by all who know them. The children who live at a distance were unable to be present at their mother's funeral, but were here only a few weeks ago, having been called by her serious illness. After their arrival here she improved in health and enjoyed the visit with them, and when they departed for their homes about two weeks ago she appeared to be regaining her health. Last Friday she took suddenly worse and her death occurred in a few hours.
Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Reese, in charge of Rev. M.M. Alden, pastor of the Methodist Church of Fairview. The body was taken to Caldwell, Kansas for burial, accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. L.B. Reese and daughter, Miss Edith; Mose Hildreth and family, Sam Reese and wife, and Mrs. J.W. Mulcahy.

This obituary is copied from a newspaper clipping, which is glued into the family bible belonging to Savilla's son, Francis Marion and his wife Emma M. Hildreth.

Savilla is buried at the Corzine Cemetery, Caldwell, Kansas
