MARION, CRITTENDEN COUNTY, KENTUCKY, JULY 18, 1907.
THE GRIM REAPER'S
Death Invades Many Homes
SIX PERSONS WELL KNOWN IN MARION
Mrs. Kmilino Gordon, wife of
Frank Wheeler, and daughter of the
late W. C. Carnahan, Marion's
wealthiest citizen at the tin.e of his
death, died Sunday morning, July
1 i, 11107, at nine o'clock at her
home in this city corner Hellvillc
and Collcgo streets, after an illncs
extending over several years, during
which she suffered greatly from
rheumatism and other bodily
which kept her in her room and
bed most of the time. Probably no
resident of Marion has ever been
afflicted so acutely as has Mri.
Wheeler and the sympathy of tho
public has been with her and her
husband the whole time.
She was born Oct., 21, 1852, and
was therefore in her 55th year.
She is survived by her husband,
who has been her insepcrablo companion
and nurso for several years
and who by his kindness to his afflicted
wife, has won the love and
admiration of all familiar with the
great care and responsibility which
she has been to him. Never a word
of complaint has he made, but has
forsaken everything else for her.
Mrs. Wheeler was the mother of
two sons, Gussic, who died in infancy,
and Claude, who met an untimely
death Aug. .'!, 1!)00 having
been shot by an unknown assassin.
His widow, Mrs. Mattie Clark Wheeler,
and three children, Kula, Floyd
and Bradbum, make their home now
with the bereaved grand-father.
Sho is survived by one brother, Mr.
W. G. Carnahan, and by one half

Cundifl and joined the Methodist
church about twenty years ago.

The old who have lived out their

call, and not infrequently is the
little ono taken before the dawn of
childhoods happy days and while
yet the tiny one is in the arms of its
doting parents, all this seems sad to
the afflicted ones, but when we are
called upon to look on the form ol a
fino young man just grown to man's
estate, laid low by the hand oi death

love and life of his swecthcat wife
it is peculiarly and we
