    Notes 
    • Obituary: Mrs. Mary A. Camp

      After a few months of an illness of intense suffering, God answered her prayers to be taken to her heavenly home, where she would be at rest. Her Savior called her to her final rest, Saturday, July 25 at 11:50 p.m. at the age of 78 years and 5 months.

      Mary Alice Bennett, daughter of Abram and Rachel Bennet, was born February 26, 1853 in Warren Co., Ohio. In 1857 at the age of 4 years, she came with her parents to Doniphan County, Kansas, being among the first settlers in the eastern part of Kansas. Here she spent her childhood days, experiencing many of the hardships, her father being government Agent for the Indians.

      She was married to George W. Camp, March 7th, 1867. With her husband and four children, they came to Phillips Co., Kansas and settled on a homestead six miles south of Kirwin. She has spent 55 years in helping build up this part of Kansas, seeing many hardships and trials of pioneer days.

      To this union was born nine children: Etta E. Snow, Walter A. Camp, deceased; William F. of Wallace, Kansas, Arthur E. of Merino, Colorado, Ora A. Hoar of St. Louis, MO., May N. Smith, Alice R. Bogart, Carl C. and George R. Camp of Kirwin, Kansas. The husband and Etta and Walter having passed on before.

      She was married to L. C. Rasmussen on 26 may 1892. To this union two children were born: Bessie D. Aelescher? of Denver, Colorado and Earl E. Rasmussen of Kirwin.

      She was brought up in a Christian home. Her father was a Methodist Minister. She became a member of the church in early childhood and has been a true and faithful believer all her life. She would always attend the prayer meeting and all Sabbath services. No matter what kind of weather her place was always filled with her presence. She was always willing to help and care for those in need. Her companionship will be sadly missed by those who were near and dear to her as the comfort and happiness of her family was uppermost in her mind.

      She leaves to mourn her departure, five sons and four daughters, thrity seven grand children, forty seven great grand children and three great great grandchildren. Besides her children, she leaves one sister, Mrs. Ada Downing at Colorado Springs, Colorado, two brothers, Charles Bennett of Simeon, Nebraska and David Bennett of American Fork, Utah and also a number of nieces and nephews and many friends.

      The funeral services were conducted Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. from the Methodist Church, by the Pastor G. G. Milner. Burial in the Bogart Cemetery. The singers were Mrs. Russell McFadden, Mrs. Raymond Knowles, Mr. Paul Royce and Mr. Frank Brotemarkle. Pianist Mrs. Marion Kjontz.
