Obituary:The Daily Courier-Gazette 13 Apr 1909. "PASSING OF PIONEER. Mrs. S.J. Lair, aged 73 years, an honored pioneer wpman of Collin County, died Saturday at her home one mile west of Anna after a siege of pneumonia. She had been a resident of Collin County for over half a century, and her husband whose death occurred some twelve or fifteen years ago, at one time represented Collin and Denton counties in the State Senate. She was a charter member of the Anna Baptist Church which was organized about a half century ago. She was a native of Casey County, Kentucky, but came to Texas and Collin County in 1853 and has lived a life that has been a blessing and a benediction to all who knew her. Funeral services were conducted at her late residence at 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon by Rev. L.L.Sams, pastor of the Anna Baptist Church, and Rev. H.N.G. Bently, pastor at Plano, after which the remains were laid to rest in the Lair family burying ground, in the presence of a great throng of the residents of that community, who had gathered to pay a last tribute of love and respect to the memory of this noble pioneer woman."
