Note: Family anecdote (Findagrave.com):

Peter had finished the cabin in Blue Rock but for the doors and went back to Salt Creek Twp. for his family. He took one load of belongings and the family and moved them to the new cabin. When he went back for the rest of the furniture and tools, Rebecca remained in the new home. It was a long drive both ways and Rebecca had problems without the door. The bears and wolves prowled around all night but didn't come in because of the fire. Myrtle was told by her mother that it was a common occurance to go to the spring for water and meet and old bear and a couple of cubs. She said the winters at that time were rather mild and they wore sunbonnets the year around. Peter also helped build a school near Keiffer. About a mile and a half from his farm.

PARTING TRIBUTE IS PAID TO GRANDMA DEVAULT'S MEMORY

Large Concourse of Sorrowing Friends Attend Funeral, Interment in Bayard Cemetery

The last sad rites for Caroline E. DeVault, better known as Grandma DeVault, were held last Sunday afternoon from the home of C. H. Harpole, a large concourse of sorrowing friends attending the funeral to pay parting tribute to the wonderful old lady who had endeared herself in the hearts of all who knew her.

Caroline E. Clark was born in Montgomery County, Missouri, November 10, 1837, and died Friday, April 27, 1923, aged 85 years, five months and 17 days. She was married to Henry DeVault on December 20, 1860, and to this union were born seven children, five boys and two girls, four of whom have preceeded her to the great beyond. Those who survive are a son, William P. DeVault, and two daughters, Mrs. Emma Harpole and Mary Elizabeth DeVault, all of Bayard.

Grandma, as she was familiarly known, united with the Methodist church shortly after her marriage and lived a beautiful Christian life ever after, being always ready to lend a helping hand or a word of cheer to those in need. She and her family removed from Missouri to Bayard in April, 1901, where they have since resided. Since the death of her husband October 28, 1908, she has made her home with her two daughters, Mrs. Emma Harpole and Mary Elizabeth DeVault, whose loving care and constant solicitude prolonged and brightened the last years of her life, their devotion being a wonderful example of filial love and respect.

Although she has been an invalid for the last five years, she was always patient and loving and was only waiting for the summons to come home and rest. "She knew that in her Father's house there are many dwelling places, and the way she knew for she knew Him who said, 'I am the way'."

The Rev. J. Arthur Miller had charge of the funeral services, the body being laid to rest in Bayard cemetery.


OBITUARY #2

AGED MOTHER DIES AT HOME OF DAUGHTER

Caroline E. DeVault Passes To Final Reward On April 27th.

Whether death comes in the high or the low, the rich or poor, as a rule, it leaves behind it sorrow and regret, and particularly so the former in the passing of Mrs. Caroline DeVault, which occured at the home of her two daughters, Mrs. C. H. Harpole and Miss Elizabeth DeVault, on last Friday, at about 4 o'clock in the afternoon.

While advance age and ill health has for some time prevented Mrs. DeVault from taking an active part in the affairs of her home, many people will remember the kindly hospitality, and tender sympathy extended, and the many things that endeared her to those with whom she met.

She, with her two daughters, moved here from Missouri in 1901, being preceded by Will DeVault, who is a resident of this city and by Aylett, who passed away several years ago.

She died -- I shall say without regret and certainly without fear and without complaint. Her life was a steady, reliable light, that did not flame out at times with extraordinary brightness, but in its uniform glow, guided many to the uniform ways of life.

Caroline E. Clark was born in Montgomery County, Missouri, on November 10, 1837 and passed away at the age of 85 years, 5 months and 17 days.

She was married to Henry DeVault on December 20, 1860 and to this union were born seven children all having passed away except W. P. DeVault, Mrs. Emma Harpole and Miss Elizabeth DeVault, all of whom reside in Bayard.

Mrs. DeVault was united with the Methodist church in her early life and remained devout in her belief until the end.

Since 1908 she has resided with her two daughters, following the passing of her husband and for the past five years has been an invalid. Often was the worn body frought with pain, but with it all, she bore her cross meekly, only waiting for the summons to join the loved ones on the other shore, and meet Him on whom her reliance was placed face to face.


Note From Bible of Emma Isabelle (DeVault) Harpole:

Caroline E. DeVault died Friday, April 27th, at 4:30 -- age 85 yrs., 5 mos. & 17 days. She fell on Sunday eve. just as she was ready for bed & broke her hip. She only lived 13 days, went home to be with the ones gone before.
