July 23, 1920 - Aged Citizen Dies Near Iuka
"Uncle Jesse" Thrasher, one of the oldest citizens of this county, died at his home near Iuka last Thursday morning, after a brief illness. He had been ill for only a few days and was thought to be recovering. On Thursday morning as he had started to eat his breakfast, which was brought to him, he fell over dead.
Mr Thrasher was 69 years of age and has spent the greater part of his life in this county. He was one of the community's most highly esteemed citizens, being a Christian of the highest type and one in whom his neighbors placed their entire confidence. He was the father of several children, who survive. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. D. R. Robertson of Mount Olive, after which the Masons took charge of the remains and made interment with Mason honors. Burial took place at the Wayland Arbor Cemetery.
Dec 28, 1928 - Mrs Cyntha M. Thrasher Dead (way name is spelled)
After an illness of thirteen days, Mrs Cyntha M. Thrasher died at her home at this place last Sunday about four o'clock p.m., December 23rd.
Mrs Thrasher was in comparatively good health until she developed a severe attack of pneumonia and though she battled the malady bravely, her vitality could hold out no longer.
Deceased was 63 years of age. She was born in Baxter County, near Iuka in which vicinity she resided until about seven years ago when she moved to Calico Rock. When quite young she was united in marriage to J. C. Thrasher, whose death occurred a number of years ago. To this union were born eleven children, three sons and eight daughters, who survive, as follows; Frank Thrasher, of Mtn Home, Ark.; Walter Thrasher, Norfork, Ark.; Charlie Thrasher, Calico Rock; Mrs Maggie Hall, Wynnewood, Okla.; Mrs Stella McKinney, Steamboat Springs, Colo.; Mrs Ethel ?, Cynthians, Ky.; and Mrs Cora McClellan, Mrs Dot Lindsey, Mrs Dove Langston, Misses Theoro and Electra Thrasher of Calico Rock. A brother, B. F. Wayland of Enid, Okla. and a sister Mrs Belle Thrasher of Red Fork, Okla., also survive.
Mrs Thrasher united with the Cumberland Presbyterian church many years ago and it goes without saying that she lived a consistent and active member of same throughout the years that followed/ She was closely attached to her home life and family typifying the true wife, mother, friend and mother.. Her passing is deeply deplored by the countless number who knew and loved her.
Funeral services were conducted at the home Monday morning at 10 a.m., by her pastor, Rev. D. R. Robertson, burial taking place at Wayland Arbor, near the old home of the deceased, Monday afternoon. A large gathering of relatives and friend attended the services at the home and at the grave.
They could have been for me, because they belong to my bunch. Maybe they were also for some of the Wayland family - Jesse C. Thrasher was married to Cynthis M. Ann Wayland. Also, I don't find Ollie E. Thrasher or George B. Davis listed in my records, but Cora and Dorothy (Dottie) Mae and Cora Elizabeth are sisters. James David (or Davis after his Dad) Thrasher shows married to Martha (Mattie) Dixon, Jan 8, 1908. Don't know if these differences mean anything to you or anyone else, but here they are - it's just what I have recorded.
