Elizabeth Acton Mrs. Elizabeth Acton, widow of F. W. Acton, died last Monday evening at 9:30 o’clock of diseases incident to old age. Although she had been in ill health for some time her condition had not been serious until the previous Wednesday. She had reached the ripe old age of a little more than 81 years. She was living with her daughter, Mrs. James B. York and Mr. York, of near Sulphur Springs at the time of her death. She was a faithful member of Mt. Vernon M. E. Church South and a splendid type of womanhood. Her friends were numbered by those who had the blessing of her acquaintance. She is survived by six sons and daughters as follows: E. C. Acton, Indianapolis, Ind.; Mrs. Sarah J. Duke, wife of O. T. Duke, Owensboro; Mrs. Ira Duke, Owensboro; Mrs. Maud Daniel, wife of John Daniel Beaver Dam; Mrs. Eva Burton, wife of Dock Burton, near Sulphur Springs and Mrs. Martha York, wife of J. B. York, near Sulphur Springs. A number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren also survive. Her husband preceded her to the grave about ten years ago. Funeral services were conducted by her pastor, Rev. H. S. Gillette, at Mt. Vernon church, Tuesday afternoon at 2 o’clock. The body was laid to rest in the cemetery nearby. The bereaved ones have our sincerest sympathy.
