Another Pioneer, Mrs. Conner, Dies

Mrs. Ida Conner, 81, one of the last of the original Horton residents, died at 3 pm , Tuesday, December 10, 1946 at the home of her son Leo Conner, 144 East 7th St. following a lengthy illness. She became critically ill Monday.

Mrs. Conner came to Horton in 1887, in the first year of the town's existence – the first town lot being sold Sept. 20, 1886. Her husband, John Edward Conner, who preceded her in death Dec. 22, 1931, helped erect many buildings here that first year.

Ida Jane Snodgrass was born on Aug. 4, 1865 in Coatsville, Ia. She married J.E. Conner on May 5, 1884 at Reading, Ia., and three years later moved to Horton. They not only were Horton pioneers, but played a distinctive part in the development of the town. Mr. Conner was active in civil affairs as an early day railroader here, and as an engineer at the high school the last quarter of his life.

Nine children were born to this union. Two, Veta, and Bearl, preceded their mother in death. Surviving are: Roy, Booneville, Ark.; Arthur, Atchison; Charles E., Torrance, Calif.; Leo W., Horton; Mrs. Maude Cramer, Holton; Mrs. Nellie Wylie, Wilmington, Calif.; and Mrs. Mabel Troth, Horton.

Mrs. Conner was a charter member of the Horton Christian Church and active member of the Royal Neighbors.

Funeral services were held at 2 o'clock this Thursday afternoon at rake Mortuary, with Rev. Paul Skinner in charge. Music was sung by Mrs. Petty with Mrs. H.L. Cook, accompanist. Burial was made in Horton cemetery.

Pall bearers were A.A. Crane, H.B. Hauck, Ray Coy, Jap Eddie, J.J. Lindsay and Henry Lading.
