MORGAN L. PYEATT DEAD
It is with profound regret that we are called upon to chronicle the death of our esteemed fellow citizen and townsman, Mr. Morgan L. Pyeatt, who died at his home on Monday last at 12 m. He had only been sick since Thursday last, and very few knew of his illness up to a short time before his death. Mr. Pyeatt was a man who had no an enemy on earth, but on the contrary was loved and respected by all who knew him. He belonged to the Masonic fraternity and was a member of the Lodge at this place, by whom he was buried yesterday at 4 o'clock p.m. He leaves a wife and three little children, the oldest not more than nine years of age to mourn his loss, for a loss it is indeed; one that no one knows but those who have suffered it. The bereaved family have our heart felt sympathy. A more extended account will be given in our next issue.
Jacob Pyeatt was one of ten children born to Jacob and Elizabeth Pyeatt. He was born in Ohio May 5th, 1849. He with his parents moved to Illinois and later to Missouri. In 1899 he and his family came to Oklahoma and took a homestead near Lenora, where he lived until two years ago he moved to Lenora. He was married to Margaret Jane Ellison on May 21st., 1874. To this union were born four children, Robert, who died in infancy, Nellie, Dwight, and Jennie. He departed this life July 28th 1822, age 73 years, 2 months and 23 days. He is survived by his wife and three children, Mrs. Nellie Holmes, Dwight Pyeatt and Jennie Pyeatt, one brother, Thomas Pyeatt of Lemhi, Idaho; two grand children, Nora and Audrey Holmes, besides many other relatives and friends. The funeral services were held by Rev. J. S. Smith at the home in Lenora, July 29, 1922, and the remains were laid to rest in the Raymond Cemetery.
Margaret Jane Ellison Pyeatt, the eldest daughter of Henrietta and William Ellison, was born at Amesville, Ohio, May 3, 1851. While still a child, she and her parents moved to Illinois. In 1874 she was married to Jacob Pyeatt, and to this union were born, Robert who died in infancy, Nellie, Dwight and Jennie. She with her family moved to Ohio, Missouri and lived there for nineteen years before they came to Dewey County, Oklahoma in 1899, and resided on their farm near Lenora, Oklahoma for sixteen years, since then living at Lenora, where her husband died in 1922. She departed this life October 26, 1936, aged 85 years, 5 months and 23 days. Four brothers preceded her in death. She leaves to mourn her departure, one son, Dwight, and his wife, Evaline; two daughters, Mrs Nellie Holmes and Jennie Pyeatt; three granddaughters, two great-grandchildren; two brothers Theodore Ellison and Charles Ellison of Preston, Kansas; three sisters, Mrs Mary Keith of Fairview, Okla., Mrs. Orlinda Williams and Mrs. Sarah Hickman of Lenora, Okla., and many other relatives and a host of friends. Her life was a shining example of kindness, love and patience and will always remain bright in our memories. Adieu, dear ones, I have waited long / To hear the message that calls me home / And now t comes like a low sweet song / Of welcome over the river's foam. And my heart shall / ache and my feet shall roam / No more, no more; I am going home. Home, where no / storm, where no tempest raves, / In the light of calm, eternal day / Where no willows weep over lonely graves / Where the tears from eyelids are wiped away. And my soul shall sigh, and my feet shall roam / No more, no more; I am going home.
