Clay County


Margarett Ann Carder, daughter of Jesse and Eliza Carder, was born March 23, 1860, and passed into the beyond August 9, 1930; age 70 years, 4 months and 16 days.

She was united in marriage to James Elston and to this union was born three children, one son, Jesse, of Flora, two daughters, Trella and Eva, of St. Louis, Missouri.

Her husband preceded her to the beyond, eight years ago. She united with the Church of Christ at Sailor Springs, twenty-four years ago.

She was a wonderfully faithful mother and leaves a sacred memory to one son, two daughters, nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, and others.

Her time is past, her labor done,
But we are left our race to run;
Let her best thoughts and deeds support,
And steer our bark to'ard Heaven's Court.
