OBITUARY (20 September 1888)
TRIBUNE, PAGE 1
Nora Hunt, daughter of Monroe and Marie Hunt, was born October 6,1872, in Parke County, Indiana. From there they moved to Tuscola, Illinois, where she lived until the death of her mother in February, 1886. She then came to Parke County and went to live with G. W. and Susie Jacks, who live near Rockville. She found her new home to be all that was desired to make it plesant. Mr. and Mrs. Jacks bestowed upon her the love of a father and mother, and like a loving daughter that love was returned. By their own daughter and two sons she was loved and cared for as their sister. She loved her new home, and was attached to it that she was entirely satisfied, and did not care to leave unless attended by some one of the family. She had so endeared herself to them that when death claimed her, after a short illness, the language of the family was "we are broken up; we are ruined." Their friends and neighbors who knew her, loved her, as was shown by the great number who came with sad hearts and weeping eyes to follow her to her last resting place. Her body was interred in the cemetery at Linebarger's Chapel. The funeral service was conducted by Revs. W. P. Cummings and G.H. Linebarger, and the music by Mrs. A. F. White and daughter, Nellie.

"Far beyond this world of changes,
Far beyond this world of care,
We shall and one missing treasure
In our Father's mansion fair."
