Died, Aged 73
Mrs. Lizzie ALTHOF, aged 73, died on January 19th, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Charlie MAMMON, on the old Peter BOINARD homestead east of Irving.  The body was laid to rest in the Sowers cemetery, where her husband was buried a few years ago.
Surviving here are seven children, one of whom is Mr. John ALTHOF who resides in Irving.
7 Jan 1915
The infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charley BALEY departed this life at the home of Porter BALEY in the Elm community, December 31, 1914, only a few months old.  This precious little son was of few days and full of trouble, as we learn from that book that should be the guiding hand of all men.  All ministers can truthfully say too father and mother of the departed child, that they surely know where this child is, though dead. - Far beyond the parental wantenfulness, under the keen eye of him who said, "Suffer little children to come unto me."  And forbid them not, yes Mother, when you give your infant child in death, there is no wondering or musing in your mind, it is safe.
Funeral services and interment conducted by Dr. L. COMBO at the Sowers cemetery, January 1, 1915, in presence of numerous relatives and friends.

Aged Lady Dead
Mrs. BOSTLE, aged 73 years, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. McMILLON, near Irving on Wednesday evening of last week.  She had been lingering feebly since January, and her death was not unexpected.
The funeral services were conducted by Rev. DuLANEY of the Irving Baptist church and the burial was in the cemetery at Kit, on Thursday evening.
She leaves her husband and two daughters, Mrs. McMILLON of near Irving and Mrs. ALCORNE of near Dallas.
The husband was too sick and feeble to attend the funeral and one of the daughters remained with him.
Their many friends extend condolence to the family.
11 Feb 1915
Mary BRADDON, English Novelist Dead.
London - Mary Elizabeth BRADDON, the English novelist, died at her residence at Richmond on Thames, after a fortnight's illness.  She was born in London in 1837, 78 years ago.
1 Apr 1915
Mr. Theo BURGOON died in a Dallas sanitarium Tuesday, after undergoing an operation.  His remains were taken to Grapevine for interment Wednesday evening.
Deceased was one of the old BURGOON family who had lived for many years near Estelle.  Of late years he had resided in Denton where his children attended school.  He was taken sick while on a visit to his brother, Rosser, at Estelle - and taken from there to Dallas for treatment.
Besides his wife and children, who survive him, there is also a sister, Mrs. Henry LUCAS of Grand Prairie, two brothers of Estelle - Jesse and Rosser, and one brother, Charles at Washington D. C., in the employment of the Government - as engineer with the Panama Canal service.  Mrs. BURGOON was about forty-five years old.
Many friends join in condolence to the family and relatives.
16 Dec 1915
Just as we are going to press, we learn of the death of Mrs. Henry CARTER.  We are too deeply shocked to express our real feelings on so short a notice.
Not many years back, the old LIVELY school house and the old LIVELY homestead was the center of social attraction of what is now known as the Irving country.  Since her father and mother passed away, "Miss Fannie LIVELY", as she was known for many miles, has been the main-stay of the LIVELY family, and we believe she is more than any other entitled to the title of "Mother of Irving."
If we were selecting a model, true womanhood we could think of no one character in our entire acquaintance who could have better been entitled to that honor than Mrs. CARTER.  Rather than Irving sympathizing with the husband, brothers and sisters of the deceased, we feel that it is more fitting for us to accept the sympathies of the outside world, for we are at Irving all united as one big family in the deepest and most sincere sorrow for the unestimable loss.
7 Jan 1915
Mrs. Malinda DARNELL of near Estelle, was born June 23, 1850, in Midelle, Tennessee, moving from there to Tex., thirty years ago and departed this life, December 30, 1914 at the home of her son.  Mrs. DARNELL joined the M. E. Church forty-nine years ago and since that time lived in obedience to the rules of the church of her choice.  It surely should be a source of much pleasure to the surviving children to know that their's was a life with such a mother.  The sympathy of a large circle of friends go out to the bereaved family.
Interment and funeral services took place at Kit, December 31, 1914.  Conducted by Dr. L. COMBO in the presence of a goodly number of relatives and friends.  Let all mothers be as this mother said, "I am ready".        L.C.
25 Feb 1915
Mr. Leonard EISELSTEIN died at his home near Sowers, at 2:30 o'clock Saturday morning, February 20, after sixteen days battling with typhoid fever.  His body was laid to rest in Sowers Cemetery, at 4 0'clock Saturday evening.
Mr. EISELSTEIN came from Bavaria, Germany, about two an half years ago, to join his brother, Mr. Carl EISELSTEIN, who came to free America a few years prior.  He leaves to mourn his death, a widow and seven children - the oldest ten years of age, and the youngest two years.
The oldest child is seriously sick with the fever; and the mother has been very sick, but is rapidly improving.
Though a stranger in our land, and could talk our language but very little, yet those who knew him say he was a kind neighbor - always ready to help, and always friendly and cheerful.  And they loved him.
13 May 1915
