Obituary:  Mary A. (THOMPSON) SPICKARD (1829-1911)
Source:  Anon.  [n.d., but presumably just after 28 Jan 1911]  "Death Notices:  Mary A. Thompson Spickard."  Grundy County Gazette, Grundy Co., MO.

[I am transcribing from a photocopy of a typewritten transcription, not the original article.  The transcriber indicates part of the page was "too dim" to read, suggesting they were working from a microfilm copy of the newspaper.  Photocopy supplied by Betty Ann (Matthiesen) Cogliati, who got it from Myra (Davis) Dipple, who got it from Winifred (Thompson) Ranford.  If you have a readable photocopy, I would very much appreciate a better copy.  Note that "Rieunague" is Nicaragua.]
