Thanks for notice of the obituary. It was helpful (Elmer Hayden would have been my father's third cousin). I had to study the obituary carefully before realizing it must have been in 1925 (based on the age of the deceased). It might be helpful to add this to the obituary since other interested people may not have Mrs. Elmer Hayden's birth date. My records show that according to the 1900 census, Mrs. Hayden was born May1859. She was the former Nancy Jane Smith and married Elmer Hayden in Kankakee Co., IL on 4 Dec 1878. I have Cora rather than Cors for the name of the daughter, although the latter could be a nickname.
I should also thank Nancy for the marriage notice for Henrietta Baughman⁄Paul Macy marriage. You may have noticed that I had submitted Henrietta's obituary earlier. This also adds information I didn't have. Henrietta and Elmer Hayden were 2nd cousins, both descendants of John Ritter (my ancestor) of Tuscarawas Co., OH.

The fire department was called to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Thuel Hayden last Saturday when their house was discovered to be on fire. Mr and Mrs Hayden had just started for town when they looked back and saw the house was on fire. They hurried back and with the help of neighbors soon had the fire out very little damage was done.
Dec. 19th being the twenty-fifth wedding anniversary of Mr and Mrs. Addison Clark, fifty neighbors and friends surprised them and helped celebrate the occasion. The evening was spent in visiting with old friends and playing cards. At a late hour everyone departed wishing Mr and Mrs. Clark many more years of happy wedded life.
C.P. Pixley, of Hammond, was here Monday to attend the funeral of his
sister, Mrs Palmer Edgerton.
The Y.W.F.S. met at the home of Mrs E. J. Pixley Monday evening, Dec. 14. Committees were appointed and work planned for the year's work. Mrs Felter, leader of the Y.W.F.S. society at Hebron, gave a very interesting talk on aims of the society and encouraged diligent work along these lines.
