Lincoln Republican --- Thursday, November 29, 1917
---Walter JACKSON was born in Cloud County, Kansas, near Simpson, March 15, 1892. When he was four years old the family moved to near Barnard in this county where he grew to manhood. He was married to Miss Alice MURPHY May 23, 1917; died at St. Johns Hospital, Salina, Kansas, November 23, 1917. The funeral was held at the M. E. Church in Barnard Friday, Nov. 23, Rev Griffith of the the Baptist Church preaching the funeral sermon. Interment was in Old Milo Cemetery. He leaves to mourn his loss the wife, father, mother, six brothers and three sisters.
Walter was very popular among the young set in his community, and two years ago he, with his brother Bronce, made the Barnard High School football team well nigh invincible. Both of the boys were musically inclined and wer much in demand at social and musical events and were always ready to do their bit in the community life. It is hard to realize that Walter has passed away, taken as it were from strong young manhood into eternity almost without warning. Would that we could find words of comfort for the sorrowing girl-widow, so recently a happy bride, and to the loving parents and brothers and sisters.
Added note: This obituary appears in the paper with two other obituaries for Mrs. Fred CROWL and Mrs. Will WILD (which can both be found on this webpage!). Next to the obituaries is the following short notice: "Grief Multiplied" --- Alee JACKSON and family of Barnard, certainly had an overflowing measure of sorrow last week. Alee's son Walter was buried last Friday afternoon and that night Mrs. Will WILD, west of Barnard, a sister of Mr. JACKSON, died and the same night Mrs. Fred CROWL, south of Barnard, a niece of Mr. JACKSON, died. Surely their cup of sorrow is running over.
