Notes concerning Mary Jane:

From the Valley Falls Vindicator and the Perry Mirror:

"Mary Jane Dupee Carter, grandmother of Lester Scales of this city and a pioneer resident of Jefferson Co., died at her home near Ozawkie early Monday morning. She was born on Oct. 28, 1848 at Platte City, Mo. where she lived with her parents until she came to Kansas a the age of six years. After the death of her mother she made her home with Grandma Corman in Ozawkie until her marriage to E. L. Carter, a Civil War Veteran, on Mar. 21, 1867. To this union were born seven children, two of them preceding her in death. Mr Carter died on March 13, 1923. Her surviving children are Harry of Kansas City, Ks., Annie Lowe of Perry, Ks., Joe M. of Wickenburg, Ariz., Louella Scales of Meriden, Ks. and James Edward of Garber, Okla., also 15 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. She was one of a family of 8 children, 4 sisters and 3 brothers, all of whom preceded her in death.

'Grandma', as she was lovingly known to both old and young, has spent 69 years on this farm where she came as a bride in 1867. A lifetime of service to others and her home (and her home was a home in every sense of the word) always had a warm welcome to strangers or friends who visited her and we, who knew her best, can only say, as James Whitcomb Riley expressed it:

I cannot say and I will not say

That she is dead- she is just away!

With a cheery smile and a wave of the hand

She has wandered onto an unknown land

And left us dreaming how very fair

It needs, must be, since she lingers there

And you- O you, who the wildest yearn

For the old time step and the glad return,

Think of her faring on, as dear

In love of there as the love of here:

Think of her still as the same, I say;

She is not dead-she is just away... END

Mary had been ill for years and recently sustained a broken hip.

A grandson and granddaughter and her husband will provide the music, six grandsons will act as pallbearers and another grandson, the Rev. Everard Carter of Fort Worth, Tex., will officiate at the funeral services which will be at the Ozawkie United Brethren church this Thursday morning at 10 o'clock. burial will be in the Ozawkie Cemetery, Jefferson Co., Ks."
