NEWSPAPERS: Thursday 30 August 1917, Harris Creek, Hardin County, Illinois
Mrs. Anna FLOYD and daughters who live in Kentucky visited at E. J. OXFORD's a few days last week. Mr. and Mrs. Sanford BENNETT who have been visiting the family of E. J. OXFORD returned to their home in St. Louis last week. Mrs. BENNETT informed us that Mrs. Fanny ADAMS, formerly of this county, but who now lives in St. Louis, is in very poor health and is not expected to live until winter.
NOTES: According to her death certificate her maiden name was HALL. She was 59 years old when she died of a heart attack. She had been out milking the cow and her granddaughter Marguerite Floyd was with her. It was early in the morning and she killed over while setting on the milk stool. Marguerite tried to wake her grandma because she thought she was asleep. No one else was home as everyone had left early for work. It was bitter cold and Marguerite laid by her grandma in the barn all day trying to stay warm until someone got home. Every now and again she would shake her grandma trying to get her awake, but she never woke again on this earth. Marguerite was almost 6 years old. She never forgot about laying there beside her grandma all day long on a cold January day, when she was just a little girl. Aunt Marguerite has told me this story many times.
