OBITUARY: Concordia Blade-Empire, Apr 6, 1925. "DEATH REMOVES MRS. MILLIRONS, ILL FOR MONTHS Mrs. John Millirons, mother of Mayor A. D. Millirons, died Sunday night at the Millirons home from the effects of influenza, followed by complications. She was 84 years old at the time of her death, and had been in poor health for nearly a year but had not been bedfast. Burial services will be held from the Millirons home on West Eighth Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, with Rev. George R. Anderson of the Presbyterian church in charge.

Martha Jane Earhart was born near Dayton, Ohio, April 20, 1840. When she was three years old, her mother died, and she was reared by an aunt (** She was raised by a subsequent wife of her father, but we have not determined if this stepmother was otherwise related to Martha, ie a previous aunt by marriage **). In 1854, she was taken with the family to Macon County, Missouri, and on Sept, 19, 1860, she was married to John Millirons in Unionville, Missouri. In 1877 they moved to Kansas and settled on the farm west of Concordia, where the children were reared. Five children were born to them: James Alfonzo who died in infancy; Mrs. Delia M. Hass, who died June 5, 1906; Mrs. Laura E. Johnston; Mrs. Jessie F. Johnston; and Mayor A. D. Millirons who are now living in Concordia. She is also survived by her husband John Millirons; 13 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.

In 1885, she became a member of the church, and since living in Concordia has been affiliated with the Presbyterian church here. In former years, she was a member of the W. C. T. U., but had not taken any active part in the organization in latter years.

The family moved to Concordia in 1888, and Mayor Millirons took over the home place, which is now being farmed by his son, Walter. Mrs. Millirons was a fine woman, whose whole interest was centered in her family and her friends. While never taking any active part in public affairs, her interest was keen in civic matters, and she kept in touch with them through her family."
