Susan Elizabeth MEANS, the subject of this sketch, was born in Fayette Co. Kentucky, May 18, 1833. She passed away at the home of her daughter Mrs. Albert HEISEL, May 27, 1912 aged 79 years and 9 days. She had been confined to her bed since the 7th of last July. She bore her afflictions with great patience and was fully prepared and anxious for the change.

When three years of age she moved from Kentucky to Indiana where she grew to young woman-hood. On Nov. 14, 1850 she was married to John O. (Ochiltree) MCCLURE. To this union were born seven children three sons and four daughters. The husband, one son and one daughter have gone on before. Two sons S.M. (Samuel M.) MCCLURE and A.L. (Abraham Lincoln) MCCLURE are living in the San Luis Valley Colorado.

Two daughters Mrs. J.F. (John Fletcher) HOWARD and Mrs. J.L. (Josiah Lewis) HOWARD living in Shenandoah, Iowa and the youngest daughter, Mrs. Albert HEISEL lives near Morland Kansas.

She was converted and united with the Leland Baptist church in the year 1889 and lived a consistent Christian life until God called her home. She was one of the earliest settlers of western Kansas having moved to Graham County in the spring of 1879. In Sister MCCLURE's death the community has lost a good neighbor, the church a faithful member and her family a true mother.
