The death of Mrs. James Carter occurred last evening at 4:15 o’clock at her home near Shawnee Mound and in her death the community loses one of its highly respected women.  Nearly all of her life has been spent there and she was beloved by all. A disease of the throat and paralysis caused her death, a shock of the latter coming on last Monday. Mrs. Carter was a daughter of Peter Wheeland and was born in Ross County, Ohio on April 25, 1839. She was married there January 6, 1858 to James Carter and immediately left her Ohio home and accompanied him to the Shawnee prairie. The husband and five children survive: Mrs. Lulu Nuss of Terre Haute; Mrs. Lizzie Patton; Mrs. Lettie Foster; Edward and Nelson Carter. The deceased had been a member of the Baptist Church nearly all her life and was actively connected with the church at Newtown. The funeral will be conducted from the residence on Sunday afternoon at 2 o’clock. Rev. Mr. Henson, pastor of the Baptist Church at Newtown, will officiate and the interment will be made in the Salem Cemetery.
