Source: Crawfordsville Daily Journal 10-3-1910

Waveland, Oct 3 -- This morning at ten o'clock the spirit of David William  McMURTRIE passed from his body and the sojourn of a good man on  this earth ended. Mr. McMurtrie had been ill for several months  of a complication of diseases and his condition has been serious  since last Thursday. He was born March 16, 1826 near Marsha,,  Parke County. On Nov 1, 1858 he was married to Martha COOPER and  she with six children survive him. The children are Mary of  Waveland; Mrs Margaret Noel of Rockville; Sophronia of Owatonna  MN; William of Mexico, MO; Prof IG McMurtrie of Al Canto, TX and  Clarence of Marshall. One brother, John McMurtrie of Marshall is  also living. Mr. M. was a lifelong member of the Presbyterian  Church and for many years an elder in that denomination. He lived  the life of a complacent Christian and his life was an open book  known and responded to all men. The time for the funeral has not  yet been made. - typed by kbz
