The funeral service occurred at Lake Prairie church at one o'clock yesterday. Rev. McCloud conducted the service. John Castle had charge of the burial service. The remains were laid to rest in the Fuller cemetery. The deceased, who was 76 years, 11 months and 18 days old, was one of the oldest and most highly esteemed citizens in this section, and was a very charitable and friendly woman, and her demise is to be regretted.
It may be of interest some time to a student of our history to find here the record that the place where Mr. and Mrs. Marvin made their last home and erected a spacious mansion, which now with the valuable farm passes to their adopted daughter, Mrs. Philip Stuppy, is on the spot selected for a home by Judge Robert Wilkinson in 1834, one of the very earliest claims selected in what became Lake county.
It may be noted here, too, as a rather singular coincidence, that a copy of the Lake County Star, August 12, 1904, which contains a memorial sketch of Mrs. Marvin, contains also, among the Old Time News, a record of the death of her brother, Horace Fuller.
