    Notes 
    • IR June 30, 1910 - Died Saturday
      Mrs. Richel (sic) Dillon, widow of the late Stephen Dillon, died early Saturday, after a long illness of paralysis and from the effects of advanced age. The deceased was about 70 years of age and was one of the best known and highest esteemed of the pioneer residents of this county. Mrs. Dillon some time ago was stricken with paralysis and she never fully recovered from the effects of the stroke. She spent all of last winter with her son, William Dillon at Shreveport, La., and arrived home one week ago. It was thought the long trip home was too severe for her greatly weakened constitution.

      Mr. Dillon died several years ago. Mrs. Dillon is survived by but one child, her son Will Dillon. News of her death was received here this morning by major Jere Davidson. Nothing is known of the time for the funeral, but the interment will be in Woodland cemetery besides the remains of her late husband.

      Few women in this county were better known than Mrs. Dillon and surely none were more highly esteemed or generally beloved. She was the soul of honor, lovable and charitable and was never happier than when engaged in making other people comfortable and happy. Her death will be widely mourned and universally regretted.
