The following obituary has been handed us:
     George Washington Padgett was born July 20, 1873, at the old homestead north of Peabody (Marion Co., Kansas). His impressive years up to .......were spent at that happy place. With his parents, he then moved to a farm near Florence, (Marion Co., KS) where he lived until he was married on Dec. 20, 1899 to Miss Alice Irene Pipkin (1882-1977) of Peabody. For a time this happy couple made their home near Peabody. About seventeen years ago they moved to a farm east of Marion (Marion Co., KS) where they have since lived. Their home was always a happy place, kindness and consideration being the rule of the home not only for their immediate family, but for all. Truly, it can be said of Mr. Padgett, he was a faithful, true and loving husband and father. Into this happy home came two sons, Floyd Calvin (1901-1988) who is at home and Oliver Glenn Padgett (born 1903) who preceded his father in death Dec. 26, 1921. As we...sure and see things about us, the world looks sad, but God is good and ... through Christ we feel that father and son are shaking glad hands as they meet at the feet of Christ, whom they both served.
     George was a Christ like man he decided early in life to become his disciple and during these many ... all who knew him stand and my he was a true follower. At the close of such a life, we hear again the words, "well done, good and faithful servant, enter though into the joys of the Lord."
     Mr. Padgett, united with the Christian Church at Peabody, (KS) when a young man and when he moved to Marion he entered joyfully into the church work here. He was soon elected by the church to serve as Deacon and to this high calling in Christ he was most faithful serving into death.
     He leaves the good wife, one son, Floyd [1901-1988], and his father, J. C. [John Cavin 1842-1940] of Florence who trained him in the ways of Christ. His mother [the former Margaret Ann Norris 1848-1880] died when he was young. His stepmother [the former Phebe Amelia Lofgren 1870-1958] is living and mourns his departure for he was to her a son and she to him a mother. He also leaves four brothers, William Sherman Padgett [1866-1944] of Marion, John Manson Padgett [1869-1953] of Greenleaf, Kansas, Rusau Woodson Padgett [1875-1937] of Peabody and a stepbrother, Curtis Padgett [1897-1960] of Oxford, Kansas.
     There is one living sister. Mrs. John [Lucy Jane Padgett] Snelling [1877-1932] of Florence. Four living stepsisters, Mrs. Grace (Padgett) Selvy [1889-1974] of Burns, Kansas, Miss Harriett Padgett [1895-1975] of Florence.

     Samuel Pendland, aged 59 years, died at the home of his sister, Mrs. Amanda Mahan in Lewis county near Emerson, Monday moring April 16, after an illness of one week of fever. Mr. Pendland had come here to Kentucky about three months ago to visit friends from Sabetha, Kansas, where he had lived for ten years, and had visited in Fleming, Mason, Bath, Rowan and Lewis Counties before his death.
     He rushed the news to his home and his son, Hubert W. Pendland, who resides at Horton, Kansas came here Monday morning, arriving just three hours before his death, and he was able to know him and begged of him to take him back home, which, after his death, they called the local undertaker, Clarence Henderson, who went and got the body and brought it here, repared it for burial and shipped Tuesday morning to the home at Sabetha, Kansas, in charge of the son that had come to accompany him back home, but found him near death's door upon his arrival.
     He leaves three sons, Hubert W. of Horton, Kansas; Oscar M. and Samual Clayton of Sabetha, Kansas; one daughter, Mrs. W. E. Hinton of Sabetha, Kansas; four brothers, George of Salt Lick, Ky., Will, Sherman and John of Golden Ridge and two sisters, Mrs. Amanda Mahan of Golden Ridge and Mrs. Susan Ray of Salt Lick, Ky. His wife was before her marriage, Miss Lillie Thompson.
     The body is expected to arrive at Sabetha, Kansas,Thursday morning and will be buried beside that of his wife in the afternoon of the same day. They had hoped to get Rev. A. P. Hurst of Albany, Mo., to preach the funeral, who is an old friend of Mr. Pendland, but it seemed almost impossible, owing to the short time.
