1938 OBITUARY: Margaret Katherine Harper was born in Hart County, KY, May 10, 1873. After an illness of several weeks, she departed this life at St Mary's Hospital, Emporia, April 7 1938, at the age of 64 years, 10 months and 28 days.
She came with her parents to Madison, Kansas, in the fall of 1887. She was united in marriage with Eli Garriott in September, 1891. Her husband died March 1935. They owned a farm eight miles west of Madison, where they lived for many years, and Mrs Garriott continued to live there after her husband's death, until recently she was taken to the hospital. She united with the Baptist church in early girlhood, and her kindly deeds to others in this life bespoke her faith in the life beyond.
While no children were born to this union, Mr and Mrs Garriott reared two nephews, Chester and Rexford Harper, to young manhood; and later an orphan lad, Jack Bohart, was taken into their home and cared for as their own son. Mrs Garriott's aged mother made her home with them for many years until the mother's death. The nearest relatives living are two brothers, William Harper of Pittsburg, KS, and Sam Harper of Osage City, and a sister, Mrs Susan McMurray of Madison. Several nieces and nephews and many friends will miss her kindly smile and generous deeds.
Funeral services were held at the Methodist church in Madison Sunday afternoon at two o'clock, conducted by Rev Chas L Ruhlen, pastor of the church. Interment was made in Blakely Cemetery.
