Funerals'of Mrs. Elizabeth Root
and Mrs. Christina Faught
Held in Murray Sunday
The funeral services of two of
Cass county's pioneer and most high
ly respected old ladies were held at
the Christian church In Murray on
last Sunday, Mrs. Elizabeth Root, of
Murray, and Mrs. Christina Faught,
of Lincoln, the services being con
ducted by Rev. Zener, of Lincoln.
Mrs. Root, who has been making
her home with her son, B. A. Root,
has 'been ailing for several months
past, and her condition, very serious
for the past few weeks, daily growing
weaker until the end came on last
Friday night at twelve o'clock. The
remains were taken to Elmwood, and
Interred by the side of her husband,
who died In 1891.
Miss Elizabeth H. Robey was born
In Indiana in 1832, and at the time
of her death had reached the extreme
old age of 76 years, 6 months and
27 days. In 1851 she was married
to Anson L. Root, and In 1874 they
came to Nebraska, first landing at
Plattsmouth, but soon moved to the
country, settling on the farm where
Alf Nickels now lives. They later
removed to Eight Mile Grove, an In
land town which has long since been
deserted and converted Into rich
farm lands, no trace of the early vll
lage being in evidence. Here for
many years Dr. Root practiced medl
cine, and with his good wife braved
the hardships of all the earlier set
tlers incident to the development and
prosperity of the great state of Ne
braska. Here they lived tor many
years, and later removed to Minwood
where Dr. Root died in 1891," since
which time the widow has made her
home with her son, B. A. Root, In
Murray. To this happy union five
children were born, four of whom
survive to mourn the departure of
their beloved mother: B. A. Root,
druggist of Murray; Dr. R. D. Root,
of Big Springs, Nebraska; Mrs. Dora
Shirley, of Lincoln, and Mrs. Ida Par
rlsh, of Miller, Nebraska, all of whom
have been a greater part of the time
at the bedside of the deceased for the
past few months.
Thus ends a life that has been long
and one of sterling value to all who
have known her during the many
yearB spent In Cass county, wiiere
Grandma Root, as she has been
known to many of late years, has
lived 'to gain the highest respect and
true friendship of all.
The funeral services were attended
by a large number of both old
friends, who have known her for so
many years, and the younger folks,
who have learned to love her for her
kind and lovable disposition toward
them in late years. All of them ex
tend their heartfelt sympathy to the
bereaved sons and daughters in the
loss of their dear mother.
The accomplishments of the Nebraska Telephone
Company to the betterment of its service during the
last year are represented by an expenditure of two mil
lion dollars in improvements, the placing of. 5,000
miles of new long distance lines, the building of six
new exchanges and the remodeling of nine others.
During tht ensuing year this company will place
more than 5,000 miles long distance lines, will build
several exchanges, and remodel many more to meet in
creasing service demands. Day by day we are en
deavoring to make the Bell Telephone Service more
and more valuable to you.

cemetery on the old homestead, east
One rather strange coincidence
connected with the death of these
two pioneer ladies was that Mrs.
Root while visiting with Mrs. Faught
in Lincoln several months ago, made
a passing remark that both of them
would pass away about the same
time, and true to the good woman's
prophecy, both were summoned and
closed their eyes In peaceful sleep
Just eleven hours apart. Being the
best of friends for all these years,
and passing away so near the same
hour, the double funeral was held.
They were within two years of the
same age, and laid to rest at the
same hour and day.
Thus marks the closing chapter of
two noble" lives, loved and honored by
the large gathering of friends who
attended their funerals to pay a last
tribute to their departed friends and
extend their deepest sympathy to the
remaining sons, daughters and relatives.

Mrs.Ohrlstina Faught, who died In
Lincoln at twelve o'clock (noon) on
last Friday, and the funeral held in
Murray at the same time and place
as that of Mrs. Root, Is another
pioneer of this county, and bears the
distinction of being the second white
woman married In Cass county.
Miss Christina Clemmons was born
In Ohio In 1832, moving to Cass
county with her parents in a very
early day, settling on the old Clem
mons homestead near Murray. She
was married on the 18th day of
March, 183!, to Vincent Faught, at
which time there was a double wed
ding at the old Clemmons home, Mr.
Levi Churchill and Mlsa Rebecca
Clemmons being the other couple to
be married at the same time, Judge
Towner, the first county Judge of this
county, performing the ceremony and
at this time Issued the first marriage
license Issued under the laws of Ne
braska. This was one of the early
weddings ot the state and was the
first double wedding. Her husband
died In 1861, and had she lived to
see her next birthday she would have
lived fifty years a Widow. She leaves
two sons, John Faught, of Lincoln
and T. W. Faught, of Cozad, Nebras
ka. As stated above, Mrs. Faught
died In Lincoln at the home of her
son, where she has lived for many
years, the remains brought to Mur

Christian church, conducted by ReT
Zenor, tod carefully laid to rest be-

If people could only understand
that systemic catarrh Is an Internal
disease that external applications
cannot cure, they would not need to
be warned so often about this malady,
which, when neglected, paves the way
oftentimes for consumption, at the
cost of millions of Uvea every year.
Yet catarrh may be cured, If the right
treatment is employed.
The only way to successfully treat
catarrh is by employing a medicine
which is absorbed and carried by the
blood to all parts of the system, so
that the mucous membrane or Inter
nal lining of the body Is toned up and
made capable of resisting the infec
tion of consumption and other diseases.
