Pinckneyville Advocate September 13, 1912


Prominent Cutler Lady Has Passed Beyond


Miss Elizabeth CARSWELL, daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Robert CARSWELL was born August 3, 1875 and died September 9, 1912 at the age of 37 years, 1 month and 6 days after an illness of several weeks. Her father died when she was 1 year old, her mother died when she was in her 6th year.


Mr. & Mrs. Samuel BLAIR (oldest sister's in-laws) took her into their home and cared for her until she was 15 years of age when her home was transferred to that of her sister, Mrs. J. R. BLAIR, where she remained until her marriage.


She graduated from the Sparta High School in 1896 and spent a number of years as a teacher there.


On December 9, 1908 Miss CARSWELL was married to Frank CAMPBELL and since then has made her home in Cutler.


She united with the church when 14 years old and has lived a consistent Christian life ever since. She was also a member of W.C.T.U. and the Ladies Missionary Society and did her part in upholding the cause of each of them.


She was at all time generous and considerate of others. And also as a girl and woman had an utter abhorrence of shame and hypocrisy.

She leaves to mourn her loss her husband, a little daughter, two brothers, D. W. CARSWELL of Kansas, J. J. MCKEE of Nebraska, 3 sisters, Mrs. Nancy JOHNSON of Nebraska, and Mesdames J. R. and Edwin BLAIR of Sparta besides a great number of friends.


Funeral services were held at the U. P. Church Tuesday at 2p.m. by Rev. R. H. BARR. Interment at the Mounds Cemetery.
