THE LARNED EAGLE-OPTIC, 22 September 1899
Death of Mrs. Houston

Mrs. Samuel Houston, one of the oldest residents of Pawnee county, died at her home in this city Sunday morning at one o’clock, after a long sickness, of cancer and other complications. Mrs. Houston was a long a patient sufferer, and knowing that the end of her earthly career was near, carefully and methodically made all arrangements for the final event and gave explicit directions for the funeral. She was a devout
Christian lady, and died in the firm hope of a glorious immortality. The funeral services were held at the Baptist church Tuesday afternoon at two o’clock. The remains were buried in the Larned cemetery by the side of those of her husband, who died some years ago.
