  • Name Hannah BEAR  [2, 3
    • Mrs Hannah Slawson Pioneer, Dead
      Came to Mitchell County In
      1864-Passed Away Wednesday Afternoon

      As we mentioned last week, Mrs. Hannah Slawson passed away about 5:00 o'clock after a long illness. Mrs. Slawson was one of our very oldest residents, having come to this country in 1864, coming first to Mitchell.

      Hannah Bare was born on February 14, 1843, at Pacona Hill, Monroe county, Pennsylvania, and died at Osage, Iowa, on February 15, 1922.

      While a small child her parents moved to Janesville, Wisconsin, and on October 25, 1858 she was married to James Slawson. They remained in Wisconsin for a time and then in 1864, came to Mitchell, where they resided for a time. Then they moved out to Rock Creek, and where she stayed until the death of her husband, on April 18, 1894. At this time the country in that part of the county was very sparsely populated, and the homes were far apart. Mrs. Slawson was always ready and willing to go to attend the sick; and was always appealed to by her neighbors in times of trouble.

      Upon the death of her husband she moved to Osage, where she has lived ever since. For the past three years, her son, Everett, has lived with her.

      Mr.and Mrs.Slawson were the parents of eleven children, nine of whom are living and are: Mrs. Mar Kate Ham, Henry and Everett Slawson, of Osage; Mrs. Ione Collins, Janesville, Wis.; Mrs. Ella Ashmore, Nora Springs, Mrs. Cora Bisbee, Langdon, Iowa; Joseph, St. Louis, Mo.; Mrs. Agnes Smith, Fullerton, Calif., and Mrs Vinnie Purvine, of Okmulgee, Okla.

      Her death came last Wednesday afternoon at 5 o'clock, after many weeks of sickness.

      The funeral was held Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock, at the Baptist church, Dr. A. S. Cross, assisted by Rev. W. T. Smith, conducting the service, and burial was made in the Osage cemetery.
