     1937 OBITUARY: Mrs Laura Alice Harrod, a resident of Wheatfield for over 22 years, passed away at the home of her daughter, Mrs Ross Ropp, in Wheatfield, Wednesday morning at seven o'clock.

On December 17, 1885, she was united in marriage with William Harrod, in Jefferson County, Indiana, where the young couple started housekeeping. They resided for four years at Colorado Springs, CO, coming to Jasper County 22 years ago from Jefferson County and have since been residents of this county.
     Six children came to grace the home of Mr and Mrs Harrod, four of whom survive. They are: Curtis, of Bison, SD; Burley Harrod and Mrs Ross Ropp of Wheatfield; and Halleck Harrod of CA. Mrs Cora Hamilton died in 1927 and Dewey Harrod died in 1900. The deceased is survived by two brothers?? in addition to her husband and the four above named children.
