Death of Mrs. Belle Taylor

Mrs. Belle Taylor died Saturday afternoon at the home of her sister, Mrs. George Finney, following an acute illness of two weeks duration. Mrs. Taylor is well known to Larned people as she has spent many years of her life here, and during her residence in other Kansas towns she had made many visits here.

Mrs. Taylor was born November 22, 1856, in Kentucky and died at the age of 72 years. She was married in Springfield, Tennessee, on December 16, 1876 to Thompson Taylor. In 1879 they moved from Kentucky, where they had made their home, to Girard, Kansas, and came to Larned in 1884.

There were two children, a son and a daughter, Claude Taylor, who is at present making his home in Wichita, and Pearle Taylor Williamson, who died in 1919. Mrs. Taylor was a member of the Baptist church in Wichita. She had made her home with her sister, Mrs. Geo. Finney for the past two years.

Funeral services were held from the Beckwith mortuary on Monday afternoon, conducted by Rev. G. H. Cosper. Interment was made in the Larned cemetery.
