    Notes 
    • Dead -- passes away forever -- was the sad intelligence whispered from friend to friend and the bell pealed mournfully for all that was mortal of Mary L. Means, wife of G. W. Carroll. For more then five years she has been a constant sufferer from a tumor and on the 23rd of November, she submitted to a very difficult operation, performed by Dr. Prewitt of St. Louis, assisted by Drs. Shankland, senior and junior, and Gray and Holcomb, who removed the tumor, which weighed six pounds but the next day at 3 p.m. her wearied spirit was freed forever from the agonies of suffering which she was undergoing and passed to God who gave it. George W. Carroll, whose heart now bleeds because she has been taken from him, sought and won her love, and they were married. In 1885, at a protracted meeting conducted by Rev. Galbreath, she gave her heart to Jesus and joined the M.E. Church. She leaves an aged father, five brothers and two sisters to mourn her loss. Her mother, Mary O. Means, preceded her to that better world three years ago last September. Rev. Flummer preached the funeral at the Lewis M.E. Church and her body was given to the cold, dark ground, from whence it came, in the Lewis Cemetery.
      They have put your companion
      Under the cold, damp sod
      But she smiles on her mother
      Up in the house of God.
