Obituary of Rachel A. Martin Drummond

Bloomington Echo

Friday, February 1, 1901

Grandma Drummond was buried on Sunday last from her residence in Franklin. Services were conducted by Rev. Mitchel in a very impressive style. The home was full of sympathising friends and neighbors. She was 65 years old and had been an invalid for nine years. Her husband was buried just 16 days before she was. Two daughters living in Smith Co. Kansas mourn the loss of the dear old couple who have gone to their reward. By request the same pall bearers noted for both Father and Mother Drummond except conrade Humphrey who was in poor health Sunday. They were H.M. Warriner, J.F. Zadiker, H. Whitmore, George Buck. Edwards and S.H. Williams in place of Humphreys.


Friday, Jan. 25, 1901, just sixteen days after the death of her husband, Mr. John H. Drummond, Mrs. Rachel Martin Drummond, went to rest. Mrs. Drummond had been an invalid for over nine years; only once in all that time had she been away from the house, yet she was remarkably cheerful and full of sunshine. She was converted at the age of 18, and united with the Methodist Church.

Funeral services were held in the home at 10:30am Sunday, Jan 27, by Rev. GW Mitchell, and she was liad to rest by the side of her husband in the Franklin Cemetery.

Her two daughters, Mrs. Sayer and Mrs. Nyburg, from Kansas, cared for her in her last illness, and with their families attended the funeral on Sunday. The sympathy of the whole community goes out to them in their double bereavment.
