[I don't know what newspaper this was from but Maxine Smith at the Richland Co Genealogical Society sent me this information in March 1995 which she found on page 382 of their scrapbook of obituaries from newspapers. She said "the article did not list the names of the sons and daughters, maybe a fuller account would be in a different paper."]
