Obituary: Mrs. Catherine Barningham Mrs. Catherine Barningham, wife of the late James Barningham, died at the family residence in Thompson township, Dec. 24, and was buried in Scales Mound cemetery Sunday Dec. 27. Rev. James Lowery preached the funeral sermon. The deceased was born in Artendale, Yorkshire, England, May 3, 1831, aged 65 years. She came to this country in 1850, and was united in marriage to James Barningham in 1851, at Council Hill. They lived for years on their farm in Thompson township.
Her husband was one of the most prominent men of the town, and was a leading member of the M. E. church, taking an active part in all church work. He passed away a number of years ago, and his wife remained on the farm. Seven children were the fruits of their marriage - Mrs. Mark Wright of Council Hill, Mrs. Wm. Jaggers of Thompson, Mrs. H. O. Malone, Mrs. Wm. Stauss, and Mrs. Enoch Barrett of Apple River, and son Marr, who resides on the farm.
The deceased was converted and united with the M. E. church at Council Hill at the age of 21 years, and has lived up to her belief ever since. She was afflicted with a stroke of paralysis four years ago, from which she never fully recovered. Her last illness was of short duration, and when she could no longer speak the praises of God she pointed toward Heaven, folded her arms peacefully, and fell asleep in Jesus. All the children were at her bedside when she died, except one.
Those abroad who attended the funeral were: Mr. and Mrs. H. O. Malone of Weldon,Ill.; Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Stauss of Apple River, Mrs. Wm. Jaggers of Thompson, Mark Wright of Council Hill; L. Raisbeck, Minnie Raisbeck, Wm. Raisbeck of Benton, Wis.; Jonathon Raisbeck and daughter Kitty of Shullsburg, Wis.; Charlie, May and Frank Raisbeck of Lancaster, Wis.
The family have the sympathy of the entire community in this their sad bereavement. The pall bearers were: Messrs. John White, Geo. Anschuetz, Wm. Laird, Henry Zimmerman, W. L. White and Thos. Bonjour.
Obituary: Mrs. Catherine Barningham The death of Mrs. Catherine Barningham occurred on Thursday at her home in Thompson, she was about 70 years old. Her death was a great surprise to her many friends as she had been ill but a short time. Her maiden name was Catherine Raisbeck. She was born in Yorkshire and was married in Council Hill in August 1851, to James Barningham. After their marriage they settled on a farm in Thompson and by hard work and economy they were very successful from the start. The deceased has been a faithful wife, a true and loving mother. The community will lose much by her demise, as she was a very charitable woman. She was a member of the M. E. church. Her kindness and good deeds will be remembered for years to come. She raised a family of seven children, six of whom are living. She has done everything in the power of a Christian mother to educate her family and has had the pleasure of seeing them all prosper. She received the best of care, nothing was left undone that could comfort her in her sickness, but the time had come when her affectionate family had to bid good-bye to a mother who had devoted an entire life for their sake. Following are the names of her children: Mrs. John Meloy of Normal, Ill.; Mrs. Sarah Jaggers of Thompson; Mrs. Wm. Stauss and Mrs. Barrett of Apple River; and Marv, the only son, who lives on the homestead. The funeral took place Sunday, interment at Scales Mound. Re. Lowery of Council Hill, an intimate friend of the deceased, officiated. He preached a very appropriate sermon to a large congregation, who were present to pay their last respects to a woman who had accomplished many noble deeds. The family has the sympathy of the entire community in their sad bereavement.

    Obituary - Margaret Barningham Barrett Mrs. Margaret Barningham Barrett, the daughter of James and Catherine Barningham, was born June 9, 1855, in Thompson township. She was united in marriage to Enoch Barrett, March 24, 1895 by Rev. G. A. Griswold. To this union was born one son, James. The first year of their married life was spent on the Hathaway farm in Rush township, then they moved on the farm, where she resided up to the time of her death. Years ago she joined the Salem M. E. church and later her membership was transferred to Apple River charge. Mrs. Barrett was not of a public nature but unassuming, her home was her domain. When her health began to fail and she saw the end was drawing near, she expressed her submissiveness to God’s will and willingness and readiness to meet her loved ones gone on before. During her last illness she would join with her friends in singing songs of her Savior whom she said she loved, and Heaven which she looked forward to entering soon. To mourn her departure she leaves a husband, son and three sisters, Mrs. Hannah Wright of Scales Mound; Mrs. Wm. Stauss of Galena, Ill.; and Mrs. Mannie Malone, of North Platte, Nebr. She peacefully fell asleep at 9:30 Friday evening, Nov. 25, 1927. Funeral services were held at the M. E. Church, Monday morning, Rev. R. L. Hoover officiating. Singers were Mrs. Robert Beall, and Mrs. Leo Charlton. Casket bearers were, Messrs Charlton, McFadden, W. J. White, Edward Gerber. Alex Hume, John Rowe, and Elmer Williams. Burial was made in Scales Mound Cemetery.
