    Mrs. Minnie McPherson LAID TO REST HERE
    Mrs. Minnie S. McPherson, passed away at 3:15 last Saturday morning July 19, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. H.M. Skaggs, in Dodge City, Kansas. Her death followed a paralytic stroke she suffered May 13, which confined her to her bed until death came.
    All her children were with her at the end.
    The body arrived in Topeka early Monday morning and was brought immediately to Rossville where it lay in state from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the home of her son, Mr. C.M. McPherson.
    The funeral services was conducted by the Rev. S.B. Alderson, of Topeka, at the McPherson home. Music was furnished by Dr. N.S. Clothier, of St. Marys, Mrs. A.H. Daw and Miss Leona Griswold. Messrs. I.T. Hopkins, T.P. Oliver, A.A. Cless, J.F. Zook, W.D. Pendleton and J.B. Davis served as pallbearers. Interment was made in the family lot in Rossville cemetery beside her husband who passed away November 28, 1912.
    The funeral was largely attended by sorrowing friends of the deceased lady, who had been a resident of Rossville for over thirty years prior to her removal to Dodge City two years ago to make her home with her daughters, Mrs. Skaggs and Mrs. Perkins.

Four children were born to this union, a daughter dying in infancy. The three children who survive are Mr. C.M. McPherson, of Rossville, Mrs. H.M. Skaggs and Mrs. S.N. Perkins, of Dodge City, Kansas. There are also two sisters and two brothers, Mrs. J.R. Wilt, Topeka: Mrs. A.T. Lucas, Los Angeles, Calif.; Mr. H.O. Miller, Tulsa, Okla.; Mr. Harry B. Miller, Oklahoma City; and four grand-children
