DEATH OF PIONEER CITIZEN
William Payne was born December 24, 1833, at Shropshire, England and passed away at his home in this city, June 23, 1911.
He was one of the pioneers of this county, coming here at an early day, where he spent the greater part of his life. He was an upright and conscientious man in all his dealings with his fellowmen and many mourn his death.
He leaves a son, Joseph Payne, and two daughters, Mrs. Hattie Klingner of this city, and Mrs. Lillian Brown of St. Joseph, Missouri, to mourn the loss of a kind father.
Funeral services were held from the home Sunday at 4 o'clock p.m., conducted by Rev. Chambers and interment made in the Chariton cemetery.
