Edward McGlothlin, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert McGlothlin, was born in Brown county, Texas,
December 18, 1890. His death occurred March 13, 1911. He leaves a father, mother and two
sisters to mourn his departure. His death was exceedingly sad, sudden and unexpected, it
having been caused by accident as told in last week's issue of the Independent. The
family are almost overcome with grief. A host of kind neighbors and friends deeply
sympathize with them. Edward McGlothlin came here from Okemah, Okla., in April, 1909.
Those who knew him best were impressed with his kindly disposition and courteous manner.
He was diligent, honest, generous and endeavored to lead an upright life.
The funeral services were conducted at the grave by Rev. Gorham. The grief of the family
was so intense that the minister was compelled to omit giving usual biographical sketch or
to make mention of the many excellent traits and sterling virtues which characterized this
good and useful young man.
He is not dead -- the child of our affection,
But gone unto that school where he no longer needs our protection, And Christ Himself
doeth rule. (Riverside Cemetery)
